    This is an easy tutorial to learn how to map keys and controls in Bluestack, feature avalaible only from version and up.

    1. On bluestack, launch the app you want to set up

    2. Click on the little 'Keyboard icon' on the control bar (as shown below) or press 'Ctrl + Alt + m' to enable the key mapping tool


    3. The key mapping tool will be enabled. Now click on the 'Pencil icon' to assign keys on the app as shown below:


    4. Various options will be available on the key mapping tool to assign functions present on the app.

      Note: These options will work only if supported within the app.


    1. TAP (to tap at any point on the app)

      Drag the 'Tap' icon to the place where you want to assign a key and mention the action name which will be displayed on the guidance screen.



      Click confirm and save the Key mapping.

    2. D-PAD

      Click on the D-Pat button, drag it to the place you need it and assign the keys you want to it (e.g. WASD)

    3. SWIPE

      Assign keys to map swipe function on the app



      After assigning the key, mention the action name in the space provided which will be visible on the guidance screen when you launch the app.


    4. TILT (To tilt the screen left/right, key can be assigned)

      Click on the icon marked below to map the 'tilt' function on the app.


      Enter a key to assign the tilt function. You can also increase/decrease the sensitivity of the tilt function.


    5. ZOOM (Zoom-in/Zoom-out the app screen.)

      Assign keys to map the zoom in feature on the app, like we have assigned 'Up Arrow' key to the zoom out feature.



      Now Save the chosen keys.
