  10. Press on control option from settings and select the First layout. For the majority of you, I recommend the first layout because it made for all the players.
  11. Once Control layout selected, press on Customize and change buttons if you want. Like the size of the fire button, move the button from one place to another.
  12. After, just save the layout and exit the customization window.
  13. Now, go back to the home page of PUBG Mobile and select the Map and team type like Solo, Duo, Squad, etc.
  14. And then press the Start button to start matching.
  15. Done.
