If it's Bluetooth then sure. But I found the best way to use a PS4 controller is to use DS4Windows which accepts PS4 controllers either through USB  cable or BT. DS4Windows turns the PS4 controller into an XInput device which practically every Windows game since 2010 uses.

my pc doesn't support bluetooth and i have my steam controller just laying around collecting dust so i thought this would be a solution to atleast use the receiver!

Some cursory research tells me the controller uses a proprietary wireless standard of sorts, so I don't think you can use the receiver for anything else.

Bluetooth USB adapters aren't expensive and they should work if you're not going to be too distant from the PC.

 

Then again why not just use the Steam controller? is it that bad?
