How to Enter Cheat Codes in Skyrim

Press the tilde (~) key while playing to bring up the cheat console, then type in one of the codes below and press Enter to activate it.

Many cheat codes require additional modifiers such as a quantity or an ID code. The player.additem code requires both. For example, if you wanted to add 999 gold to your inventory, you would use the following syntax:

player.additem 0000000f 999

All items, objects, and spells have a unique ID code. The Elder Scroll Wiki has a list of all ID codes and console commands for Skyrim.

Enter help in the cheat console to see a full list of commands at your disposal.
