Steam Controller

Steam Controller

Can't edit controllers
I was able to make steam read my controller, but now I can't edit it. If anyone knows how/where I can edit it I'd really appreciate it.

This may sound stupid, but is the controller powered on and connected to the PC when you try to edit its bindings?

(I admit it may be possible I'm not fully getting the question)

The controller I'm using is a wired Switch Pro Controller, which shoudn't require me to turn it on or off. I WAS able to edit the controls the first time, but not I can't, even when I click on "Identify" it just won't work.
Did you try unplugging and replugging it in? or deleting the device from windows device manager to force a driver reinstall?

I'm not sure if you are a total beginner or not. If you want to edit the controls for your gamepad while on the desktop you can go to the top bar & Steam->Settings>Controller
Look at the controller settings there, but you can edit the way it acts while outside a game just using the desktop there too.
Inside a game you can hit the central button to open the steam overlay, and the controller configuration tool is there.
Lastly, if you enter Big Picture Mode, you can enter the settings, check the steam overlay section & make sure the overlay is enabled while in a game.

That's the problem though, I can't edit the controls AT ALL. I click on Identify but it doesn't work, despite that it did the first time.

What are you talking about?

Editing a layout, or editing a config?

For a layout, you cannot change official Xbox, Sony, Steam or Nintendo layouts. This only applies to Generic controllers.

For a config, you need to enable Configuration Support in the Controller Settings.
