How to connect a keyboard and a mouse to the PS4

You will see for yourself that the procedure is very simple. The PS4 is in fact already prepared to recognize external devices, both USB and Bluetooth, such as mouse or keyboards.

In fact, if you have a mouse and keyboard with cable/wire, just insert them in the USB ports of the console and will be immediately recognized automatically.

Things do not change much if you have a keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse. In this case it is enough:

  • turn on the device and put it in binding mode (read the instructions of your product to understand how)
  • on the PS4 go to the menu: Settings> Devices> Bluetooth devices
  • the mouse or keyboard you want to associate appears in the menu
  • select the device to connect and follow the simple on-screen instructions

After doing this, going to Settings> Devices in the dedicated menus you can also adjust the sensitivity of the mouse and have access to advanced settings for the keyboard. Just like on PC, but in this case you can play directly with your PS4. 

Keys and controls to play Fortnite PS4 with mouse and keyboard

Now that you’ve connected your mouse and keyboard to the PS4, you need to know that there are default commands to control the character, but you can map and customize the commands freely to suit your style of play.
