    Does anyone know how to do this or know if it is even possible? I've seen plenty of things on the web but none of them actually work. What I want to do is make my PS4 completely forget that it knows one of my dual shock 4 controllers so that I can use it with my PC. As of now, every time I turn on the DS4 I want to use with my PC, it, of course, also turns on my PS4 and controls it. When I turn my PS4 off, It also turns off the DS4 because it is still paired. The claims on the internet are that if you reset the controller (stick a paperclip or something small in the little hole on the back of the controller next to the left trigger) it will un-pair the controller and you will have to pair the controller again with the USB cable. THIS IS FALSE. I have tried it many times and it just does not work. My only other option I guess is to just spend another $60 on a new DS4 and remember not to pair it with my PS4.

    Never mind, I figured it out for myself. If anyone wants to know, You have to make sure the DS4 you want to un-pair is turned off, then grab another controller and go to settings->devices->bluetooth devices and select the controller you want to un-pair. You will get an option to "delete" that controller from your PS4!

    Delete? Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks! I'm thinking about trying to pair one with my computer.

    The DS4windows driver is awesome. They continue to update it and add features at least once a week. Sometimes more. You can even adjust the sensitivity of the analogue sticks, which is a godsend for games like Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen. The 360 analogue sticks were WAY too sensitive. I even use it wireless with a USB Bluetooth dongle. I really hope the Dualshock 4 will replace the Xbox 360 controller as the primary PC gaming pad. Especially when you can use the DS4 touch pad as a mouse like the touch-pad on a laptop! It just makes more sense.

    Thanks for that! I've been using my Wii-U Pro controller, but I might switch to a DS4. I very much prefer its feel. :D

    There was something I posted in the forums and on a lot of PS Lifestyle articles. It has to do with tricking the PC into thinking a PS4 controller is an Xbox controller, and it worked great, didn't need to unpair the controller or anything.

    If I cared about PC gaming anymore it'd be a bigger issue than it is. Only problem was it didn't work very well for Final Fantasy XI because Xbox controllers didn't work very well for Final Fantasy Xi. XD
