Yep, you totally can! The Steam Deck supports mouse and keyboard input. Just plug them into the USB-C port using an adapter or dock, and you're good to go. It’s pretty neat for when you wanna switch from handheld mode to a more traditional PC gaming setup.

Actually, using a mouse and keyboard with the Steam Deck is like turning it into a mini gaming PC. I’ve done it with a hub that connects to the USB-C port. Works perfectly for those strategy games that just need a keyboard and mouse.

You CAN, but why would you want to? The whole point of the Steam Deck is its portability and built-in controls. Just use it as is!
