Skyrim console commands, cheats for PC

Despite the time it has been available, Skyrim still enjoys a dedicated audience thanks to a thriving modding scene, as well as Bethesda’s fair hand in designing an eminently replayable game.

However, at this point, it’s safe to say that you’ve probably played a good chunk of the game legitimately and might fancy spicing up your next playthrough with some overpowered skills, or at least removing some of the more boring elements entirely .

For this reason, we’ve compiled a rundown of some of the most useful console commands you can use for the PC version of the game. To get started with any of these cheats, all you have to do is press the tilde key (which looks like this ~) and then enter the cheat of your choice. Exit the console window by using the tilde button once more and you will see the change reflected in the game immediately.

If you’re playing the 2021 Anniversary Edition, we’ve got explanations for features like fishing.
