Putting on your PS5 controller is very simple and quick via the console. Did you know that it is possible to perform the operation via a Windows PC? Here’s how.
If your controller PS5 starts to behave strangely, there may be a DualSense update that could fix this or that problem. If you have a PlayStation 5, the update process is simple: just plug the controller into the console and wait a few moments. If you don’t have a console, however, because you use the controller to play on PC, for example, you can use a Windows computer to update. This is also an option to be aware of for the rare times the process doesn’t work on PS5.
First, use a USB cable to connect the controller to your PC. Next, you should download Sony’s DualSense Firmware Updater software. This link takes you to a help page, just scroll down and click the blue “Download” button.
Once the utility is downloaded and installed on your Windows PC, launch the program and follow the on-screen instructions. From there, your DualSense controller will update in moments.
Do not turn off your PC or unplug the USB cable while the update is in progress. Ideally, leave the controller on a flat surface during the process. If you hold it or play with it during the operation, the connection with the PC may be lost.
Once the update is complete, your controller is ready to use. If you use it with the console, you will not need to update on the PS5. And you’re good to go until the next firmware release is released.
