Use the PlayStation 5's DualSense for surfing or just for writing to the console can be difficult and quite inconvenient, so it might be useful to connect your mouse and keyboard to your PS5. Here's how to do it.

Keyboard and mouse with cable

  • Connect the keyboard and mouse to the PS5 via the USB cable to the port on the back of the console
  • After a few seconds the PS5 will recognize the device
  • If you want you can customize the device settings

In this case you will have to repeat exactly the same steps, so once you have made sure that both devices have been recognized by the console, you can activate Bluetooth on both the mouse and the keyboard. At this point everything should work perfectly.

  • Overwatch
  • War Thunder
  • Elder Scrolls Online
  • Neverwinter
  • DC Universe Online
