Is there a way to set an item as a favorite through the console?

I'm trying to add a bound sword and bound bow to my inventory and actually have access to them without doing a player.equipitem every time. They don't seem to show up in my inventory so I can't favorite them that way.

I'm not interested in mods that accomplish this bound-item function, just a way to favorite an item through console.

  • You want quick access to a Bound Weapon, without going through the trouble of casting the spells?

  • Do they not equip to your hands when you cast the spell?

First of all: You can favorite items by pressing the Y button on the item you wish to favorite. After that you can access your favorites at anytime by pressing UP on the D-PAD.

Secondly: Bound weapons are conjured weapons. Summoned through the use of Conjuration magic"

Not sure exactly what you are asking exactly however you will not find the bound sword or bow in your inventory for weapons as it is a spell. The only way to accomplish what you want is to favorite the Bound Sword Spell.

This way you will have access to the spell in your favorites and will have to recast it when the 120 second effect ends or you sheathe your weapon.
