Your PS5 Controller will start blinking once this step is done. Now on your PC go to Bluetooth settings and enable it.

Once it is connected, your PS5 Controller will highlight in a certain color (it will be default if you have not done any customization). Now you can head to Steam and from the View Tab, click on Big Picture Mode. From there click on Settings, then Controller Settings and make sure PlayStation Configuration Support is enabled. Now your PS5 Controller is ready to be used on PC as its connection is complete.
