Second once you are in big screen you can start by selecting your controller configurations. This will vary depending on the controller you use, but for examples sake (i use both Steam controllers and Xbox controllers. This will just be an Xbox controller for example).

Click the Gear icon on the top left to open the options menu

After options is opened you will see plenty of menus don’t be confused by this or antagonized, just need to click this one button here

This will bring you to the Controllers menu that you have activated (drivers and the like) you simply click the ones you have and use and steam will download the rest.

Selecting the game in big screen

This is fairly straight forward but just go to the game in your games menu (big screen even does thumbnails) select the game and you will have plenty of options in dropdown such as play, configure, etc.

Select Manage Game then Controller Configuration
