How to use the PlayStation 4 – Dual Shock 4 controller on a Windows 10 laptop by using the built-in default Bluetooth receiver with Fortnite
The battle between Apple and Epic games let too my kids not being able to play the last Fortnite season on their Apple (iOS) devices.
They decided they wanted to play the new Fortnite season on a good old Windows 10 laptop, but just like on the Apple (iOS) devices, they wanted to use a PlayStation 4 – Dual Shock 4 controller.
Out of the box I could connect the controller just by pressing the Press the “PlayStation” button and the “Share” button on the controller at the same time and hold them down.
Just make sure you are not in reach of a PlayStation.
But after that the controller was connected to the Windows 10 laptop, but Fortnite did not recognize the controller.
After a short search on the internet I found the solution at: http://ds4windows.com/
I downloaded this software / driver from Github and installed it.
After rebooting and connecting the PlayStation – Dual Shock 4 controller, before starting the Fortnite game.
Fortnite recognized the controller and all was well .
My kids now use a Windows 10 laptop for playing the last Fornite season.
