How to Open Settings on Genshin Impact
As Genshin Impact is available on many different platforms, the exact methods to open the Settings menu will be different. The game calls the pause menu the Paimon Menu, named after your diminutive assistant you meet just after you start playing.

Here’s how it’s done on each of the main platforms.

PS4 and PS5
On both the PS4 and PS5, games are commonly paused by pressing the Options button at the right of the controller. You can find it right beside the triangle button and above the right stick. Pressing it will pause the game and bring up the Paimon Menu.

On the Paimon Menu, you can move the left control stick down until you reach the gear icon at the bottom. That’s the “Settings” icon, and you just have to select it. From there, you’ll be brought to another menu.

When playing Genshin Impact, press the Options button.
Move and select the gear icon.
This is the Settings menu.
Start adjusting the settings.
When done, you can close it by pressing the circle button.
From the settings menu, you can change your controls, resolution, and other settings as you see fit. Both the PS4 and PS5 also let you use a keyboard and mouse for Genshin Impact. Originally, you were stuck with default keyboard controls, but an update has since allowed for different keybinds.

Using a keyboard to play Genshin Impact on a PS4 or PS5 will grant more precise options, which is why some gamers do so. The controls are similar to playing on Windows, which we’ll discuss right below.

Windows 10
A strong computer will make Genshin Impact look gorgeous since miHoYo spent a lot on aesthetics and graphics. Being able to use a keyboard and mouse is also great for MMORPGs, and Genshin Impact is no exception. Here’s how you will open Settings for Genshin Impact on Windows:

Press the “Esc” key on your keyboard.
The Paimon Menu will pop up. Move your mouse to the gear icon.

Click the gear icon.
The Settings menu will appear onscreen. Start customizing your gaming experience.
Close the menu after you’re done.
On PC, you’re also able to use a controller to play the game. The steps for changing your settings should be the same as the above section. However, depending on your controller, the exact buttons to push can differ.

Notably, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller isn’t supported without the use of third-party programs. Some users claim that running Genshin Impact through Steam works, but a few others require the extra programs. As such, we don’t recommend that you use a Pro Controller to play Genshin Impact. You can connect many types of controllers, such as Xbox One/X/S controllers, PS4/PS5 controllers, and even third-party joysticks. As long as the game recognizes the controller and pairs up with it, you can play with a controller on PC.

You have more control over the graphics on PC as well. Since Windows PCs tend to let you adjust the screen resolution from SD to HD and above, you can adjust it so your computer isn’t overloaded. Android
Playing on Android will necessitate you to use the touch screen to control the character. Since everything is on-screen, you might press the wrong button by mistake. miHoYo decided to assign the Paimon Menu on Android by tapping Paimon instead.
