- Alternatively, you can go to Steam > Settings > Controller > General Controller Settings > Enable “Generic Gamepad Configuration Support” for the third-party gaming controller support. Sometimes this option needs to be turned on.
- Otherwise, If none of the above methods worked and you’re using an Xbox or DualShock controller then make sure to enable the “Xbox Configuration Support” checkbox or the “PlayStation for Dualshock 4”.
