Steam Controller in Windows
I can not get the device to function as a gamepad in Windows.

Steam controller FAQ
Can I use a controller if I donít have a Steam machine?
Yes. Itíll work very well with any version of Steam.

IGN.com
The Steam Controller is compatible with both Steam Machine and PCs running Steam. Though the controller can be used to play non-Steam games on PC, functionality is very limited.

IGN.com article
Without Steam, if you plug this into one of those devices and run some game thatís not part of Steam, you would only get the most basic functionality. It wouldnít actually be very valuable as a controlling device.

ďIt would basically be a mouse with 16 buttons,Ē Coomer added.

Developed for PC Steam. Wink
