How to get 4.15 PIE to work with keys from start?

I’ve recently started using v4.15 I’ve noticed it requires the user to click in the viewport with the mouse before they can play using keyboard input, is there anyway round this so the player can start using keys to control the player character as soon as you press the play button in the editor?

Absolutely!

While you are in the Editor, go to the Main Menu: Edit; then choose Editor Preferences. Now choose Level Editor: Play. Once there check the Game Gets Mouse Control check box.

Now the game gets focus when you hit the PLAY button and receives Mouse and Keyboard inputs without them clicking on the game first

Thanks for that white rose, I’ll give it a shot!
