Similarly one may ask, can you use a controller for Minecraft PC?
There is no built-in controller support on the PC version of Minecraft. You will need something like Xpadder to change each controller input to a keyboard/mouse input in order to use a controller. The Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition supports multiple control schemes, including controllers and touchscreens.
