The controls are what give the player ability to do actions. They range from being able to fire a weapon to being able to talk on a microphone. The obvious differences between Counter-Strike controls and Counter-Strike: Source controls are small. In Counter-Strike: Source, they removed the ability to have an alternate key for controls. However, they have created separate controls for some of them.

In Counter-Strike, the player can use fast weapon switching and the developer console by default. However, in Counter-Strike: Source, the player can enable or disable fast weapon switching and the developer console as they wish.

To enable/disable fast weapon switching or the developer console:

  1. Go to the Main Menu.
  2. Go to Options.
  3. Go to the Keyboard tab.
  4. On the bottom of the Options window, click "Advanced...".
  5. Check/uncheck the boxes you want enabled/disabled.

You can change any of the normal controls by doing the following:

  1. Go to the Main Menu.
  2. Go to Options.
  3. Go to the Keyboard tab.
  4. Click on the control you wish to change.
  5. Click "Edit Key" on the bottom of the Options window.
  6. Press the key you wish to change it to.
  7. Apply the changes.
