Bluetooth setup steps

Follow the steps listed below if you want to use your PlayStation controller wirelessly. But first, we need to point something out. If you have a laptop, the chances are you have a built-in Bluetooth, but if you on a desktop computer, especially an older one, you will probably need a Bluetooth dongle adapter. Don’t worry, you can get one for less than $10. If you don’t need a Bluetooth dongle adapter (or when you get one), follow these steps:

  • Open Better DS3
  • Click on the Bluetooth pairing
  • Now, unplug the cable connecting your PS3 controller to your computer.

You will be able to use your PlayStation controller wirelessly and enjoy playing games.
