  1. Bluetooth issue with PS4 controller


    How do I add a PS4 controller via Bluetooth to my windows 10 PC? I have done it in the past and now it seems to connect and I get asked this question "Do you want to allow this device to pair?" BUT there is no where to click "yes" so what the hell!!! I am so frustrated by this issue and computers and pretty much everything in general so someone help me!!!!


    Also, when it does seem to connect to my PC it has in the past day actually but I disconnected it and tried to reconnect, which is why I am here it doesn't allow it to be used to play Fortnite so why is that? I have seen the tutorials on how to get it working vs the keyboard default way and though it works in the video I'm watching it doesn't work on my PC, of course it doesn't why would any technology work for me???

  2. Unable to connect PS4 controller to PC

    I can connect the ps4 controller just fine, my issue is that it wont show up at all after being paired. I have to unpair it, connect the device, enter the 4 digit code, it gets very tiresome. Method 1 didn't work because I had no greyed out devices. Method
    2 I have been doing, I am just trying to figure out a quicker way to connect it.
