When it comes to custom controllers, there’s nothing more important than how they look.
If you’ve ever tried to build a custom mouse or keyboard for your favorite game, you know how frustrating it can be to try to find a good combination of buttons and triggers.
That’s why Valve has always been the company to offer custom keyboards and controllers.
The company has done so for years, and now it has added support for gaming on the Steam platform.
The Steam Controller 2.0 update adds Steam Controller support for the first time, and that’s good news for anyone who wants to use a custom keyboard or mouse to play a game on their PC.
Here’s how to do that.
How to get your Steam Controller 1.

Click on the “About” section, then “More” at the bottom.4.

The next time you launch Steam, you’ll see your controller as a reward in the “Product Details” section.14.
You can use the Steam Community service to request the controller.

Once you’re happy with your purchase, you can either add the controller to your Steam library or transfer it to your account.
You must then update your profile to add your controller to the game you’re playing.18.
Once your controller is added, you need to open it up and click the “Settings” button at the top.19.

Click Next to proceed.25.
The controller should now appear in the list of controllers.26.
If all goes well, you should be able to start a new game by clicking the game’s name in the menu bar.
