I just got to the part where I can use my hands, and the first thing I did was open a chest. I couldn't work out how to close it, so started pressing buttons to see what worked. I've now opened the dev console, and can't get rid of it.

  • If anyone's coming here for help closing a chest menu: use Tab. (This is a really unintuitive UX design choice.) – SevenSidedDie Nov 12 '11 at 18:43

There are two ways to close the console:

  • Use the tilde key (` / ~ on Qwerty, ² / ³ on Azerty) to toggle the console.

  • Type the command CloseMenu Console to close the console if the key doesn't work.

  • They really should have added exit or quit as well.. even help would have been nice. First time I didn't know (I hit) the console key and couldn't get out :/ – Konerak Dec 6 '11 at 10:27
  • Two of the three commands you mention should be there... – Tamara Wijsman Dec 6 '11 at 11:48
  • I had to type HideMenu Console to close the console. I don't know if things have changed since '11, or one of my mods is interfering though. – ento Apr 23 '13 at 13:59

Hit the ` again and the console should close. Depending on what language setting your keyboard has, it might also be ^ or ~ .

    This is really better suited as a comment than an entirely separate answer – Vemonus Nov 22 '16 at 16:30
  • well, I found myself in the same situation as the OP, and for me the correct answer is the one I posted, so why is it not an answer on its own right? – santiago arizti Nov 23 '16 at 21:03
