Step 1: Download Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

Step 2: Download the Software
Click on this link:
Download latest version. (If you have problems try an older version).
Step 3: Opening the Program
Open the program that you have installed called DS4 Tool or also called ImputMapper.
Step 4: Cable Connection
Connect the controller to the computer using the same cable you use to connect to your PS4.
Step 5: Bluetooth Connection
If you want to play without any cable, you will need a bluetooth connection.
To do that make sure your bluetooth is active on your PC and go to it´s settings.
Hold both ´´Share`` and ´´PS`` buttons on your DualShock 4 until the bar starts blinking.
After that, click to add a new device on your bluetooth settings.
You should find an available wireless controller, click on it and wait to connect.
Now you can already enter any supported game. You always need to let DS4 Tool open to keep the controller connected.
