A TIKTOKER has revealed some handy tricks for the PS5 that make life a lot easier when gaming.

That's if you're lucky enough to get your hands on the new console of course.

We all love a shortcut and the PS5 is no exception.

Firstly, if you've been hitting up repeatedly to reach the menu at the top, you've been wasting your time.

It turns out there is a quicker way, simply by clicking the triangle button which will take you straight there.

"That'll take you straight to the search feature, as well as easy access to the settings, your profile, and then the games and media tabs," Harry Frazzle said.

Another neat trick he reveals is the ability to automatically mute your controller's mic when you start the PS5 up.

You can change it by going to the settings and choosing Sound.
