I am trying to use the OpenActorContainer 1 console command. Most of the threads I've seen say to "click" or "highlight" the NPC whose inventory you wish to access. However, when I click on them, the only thing my character does is draw his weapon.

How do I select an NPC?

You have to click on them while the console is open. Then type the command and press Enter.

  • just to add to this, sometimes you may click on the wrong object, most often you'll have to be fairly close to the target in order for your click to register properly.
