The console in Skyrim can be accessed in-game by pressing the ’tilde key’, can be found near the “1” key on most keyboards. It is not case-sensitive and the console prompt will appear in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. You can scroll the console output using the “Page Up” and “Page Down” keys.
