DS4Windows Review

Sven Sorensen
Utility which controls profiles, maps buttons and more for Sony's DualShock 4 PS4 controller
A review of DS4Windows by Sven Sørensen

DS4Windows is a cool application which allows you to connect and use your Playstation 4 DualShock 4 controller on a Windows system.

The application is packed with different features which enable you to take advantage of the hardware capabilities of the DualShock 4 controller including usage of the touchpad.

One main selling point of DS4Windows is its ability to use multiple different profiles, all of which can be set on the launch of a certain application. That means you could use one profile while running an indy on Steam while switching to a different one when you launch a flight simulator, for example.

Other options that DS4Windows includes are adjusting touch sensitivity, adding special actions or using macros.

Overall, if you're a gamer and like using your DualShock 4 controller while playing on your PC, DS4Windows is an excellent choice.

DS4Windows features and highlights:
  • With profiles, it makes it easier to quickly swap through various settings for your controller
  • Can also switch your controllers to different profiles automatically
  • Control mapping
  • Adjust touchpad sensitivity
  • Launch programs with certain profiles
  • Swipe two fingers along the touchpad to swap profiles
