One of the most distinctive features of Nintendo’s new game console is the Joy-Con game controllers that come with the Nintendo Switch.
The game console itself is a small tablet that you can use on the go or plugged into a TV when connected to a docking station, and the Joy-Con controllers can be used in a variety of ways too: docked to the side of the tablet, put together on a grip for traditional game controller mode, or as two smaller gamepads.
Since the Joy-Con controllers use Bluetooth to connect to the Switch wirelessly, you can also pair them with a PC or mobile device via Bluetooth.
There are some quirks though: a set of Joy-Con controllers has two parts: the left controller and the right controller. Your computer, phone, or tablet will see them as two separate devices.
But you can use an app like JoyToKey (for Windows) to map the buttons on the controllers to the appropriate functions, letting you use the controllers to play PC games.

Nintendo’s Switch Pro controller can also be used as a Bluetooth gamepad for Windows or other platforms.
