1. Download and install the NoxPlayer Android emulator
The first step is to download and install a good Android emulator. In our opinion the best emulator to run Mobile Legends is NoxPlayer (click here to download it). After installation, restart your computer and run the emulator.
NoxPlayer has a right sidebar where you can find several features. In addition to the three standard buttons present on Android phones (bottom right), the emulator has functions of rotating, full screen, screenshot, virtual location, control settings, etc.
The emulator's home screen has some icons similar to those of Android phones, as well as a Play Store search bar, where you can search for apps to download.

2. Download Mobile Legends
Click on the Play Store bar present on the emulator home screen and search for Mobile Legends. Click on the game icon and complete the action using the Play Store. The emulator will ask for your credentials. If you haven't already, just create an account.
Then, a Play Store screen identical to that of Android phones will appear. Click install and wait for the download. Upon completion, run the game and log into your account normally.

3. Configure the controls
The next step is to configure your controls. To do this, click on the "Keyboard Control" button shown in the photo above. A new menu will appear on the left side of the screen containing several draggable buttons that you can edit however you like.
Select the directional button pointed above and drag to the lower left corner (intended for character movement), as shown in the image. The default directional pad is set to the W, A, S and D keys, but you can easily edit it just by clicking on the letters and choosing the keys you want.
Then click on the icon with the letter "A", as shown in the image above. This will create a button that you can assign any key you like. Create and drag various buttons to all command areas of the screen: basic attack, skills, skill upgrade, items, shop, etc. Find the best setup for your taste and have fun!
