Can you get into the "I need you to do something for me" mode without going through the dialog tree with your companion?

If you press and hold X (PS3) like you would to move an item around when your cursor is on your companion you immediately enter the "do something for me" mode. I discovered this when trying to put a hat on an alchemy table that was being crowded by Lydia.

  • that's a nice find! I wonder if the same functionality (E key) works on PC versions.
