I thought i had to push the ~ or ` key to open the console but my PC simply ignores the command. Can anyone advise?

  • Usually, it's in the options somewhere (I don't know specifically, I'm speaking generally for Source games) – Unionhawk Feb 27 '14 at 21:14

You have to go to the Game settings and check the enable developer console. After this you can use ` or the assigned key to open and close it.

Start game -> Help & Options -> Game Settings -> make sure you have this enabled(There is an image in the source link for the page you are looking for)

Then You can go to Help & Options -> Keyboard/mouse -> and change your console key. The default is " ` "(Tilde Key).

Hopefully this helps.
