How to Use the Game Switcher

This page contains information about the Game Switcher application that can be used on the PlayStation 5.

The Game Switcher allows you to quickly swap between your most recently played games or applications without having to exit out of your current game or go through the main menu to find the other games and apps you wish to play.

Please note: This feature does not work like the Xbox Series X Quick Resume, as it does not save your current placement in games when switching. The Game Switcher will quickly exit out of your current game and load in the new one, but you'll still have to load up your save file.

To use the Game Switcher, press the Home button while playing a game to bring up the control center along the bottom row. Select the game icon you are currently playing to bring up a list of your active game, plus several recent games and media apps. Picking any one of these will immediately close the game you are playing and launch the new game or app instead.

How to Change Your PSN Name

After many, many years of fans asking, Sony has enabled the ability for players to change their PSN ID. This page covers just how to do that on PS5 and on Web Browser. You can't change your PSN ID on the PS3 or PS Vita.

But first things first; does it cost money to change your PSN ID? No, at least not the first time. Your first name change is free, but you'll need to pay $9.99 USD after that. If you're a PlayStation Plus member, the change will cost $4.99 USD after the first change.

How to Change Your PSN ID on PS5

To change your name while you're on PS5, select Settings. Then choose Users and Accounts > Account > Profile > Online ID. Once in the Online ID menu, you can choose a new name for your PSN account.

How to Change Your PSN ID on PC
