I am trying to use the command console. I tried pressing the tilde key many times but it still does not appear. Can someone help me?
There is one thing I've tried that worked for me when my ~ or "console command" button would no longer bring up the console in game.
Go to your skyrim data folder, wherever you have placed it, such as
/the elder scrolls v skyrim - legendary edition/data and look for
interface and if you see anything that says
console which are
.symlink files, move them out of that folder. I didn't want to delete them in case they were crucial files so I simply made a new folder on the desktop and moved them to that folder and out of the skyrim files location altogether and started the game.
I now have my console commands back. I've tried many different ways to get it back and found this entirely by accident, but it worked and so far no issues whatsoever.
If you are using different keyboard layouts make sure you have one active that assigns the ~ to the actual key on your keyboard. I have two keyboard layouts and can switch between them by pressing the right CTRL and SHIFT at the same time.
There are also keyboard layouts where the ~ is not yet 'pushed' so you are able to create characters like 'ñ'. In this case, press the ~ again.
