I'm trying to connect PS4 controller to PC but it goes under audio, so it doesn't work. I tried remove the device from audio, but it just goes back when I try to add it under something else.
What can I do?

After plugging it in, try going to "set up USB game controllers" in control panel. (also can be searched with Cortana). If a controller is listed, click properties. See if it is recognizing your inputs. If it is recognizing your button pressing, you should be good to go. From here I used DS4 Windows to configure the controller. Set your actual audio device as default, that way the controller doesn't prevent you from hearing audio.
I found this on answers.microsoft.com: (thank you Kapil Arya) The below worked instantly and error free for me:
*To use your PS4 controller as a game controller, you would need to download a driver for it.
The easiest way to connect the controller to a PC is using bluetooth.
To enable bluetooth on the controller, you need to first disconnect it from any device it is connected to (which can be done by simply turning off that device). Next, you must ensure that the controller has turned off completely (the light is not lit or flashing. Then, hold both the PlayStation button and the Share button until the light on the controller is flashing rapidly. At this point, the controller should be visible as a bluetooth device, and you simply need to select it on your computer. However, it is time-limited. If the light stops flashing before the PC has completely paired with the controller, it will generate an error and stop the pairing process.
NOTE: This does not work on all computers.
Apparently you need either special software or can connect it via Bluetooth.
