Quickest way to get rid of all mods?
Went a bit crazy with modding it, tried to change the way leveling up worked with some mods and well last time the game actually worked the level up perk screen had like 90% of the options gone....and now making a character crashes the entire thing.

Honestly don't get why the loading there is what crashes the game most commonly for me but when it gives me menu control the game would jerk as it loaded and usually be where a crash would happen if it did... So yeah figured just an entire uninstall would work, but would rather ask first.

I had the same problem. But then I found a mod that completely removed the instability when making characters ^^

I'll edit in a link once I find it again XD

Well could possibly just have conflicting mods too since I grabbed more than one that should change the perks. But that would be lovely for when I get the other mods gone! :D

I...think this was the one. Pretty sure it is >.< But I have lots of things like it, so it's hard to tell.

Should really help stop crashes at character creation screens. ^_^ Good luck~

p.s.: Requires skse XD

Click on skyrim, click on data files, select the mod you want to erase, click erase
and done... Just be careful to not erase extension (dawnguard, dragonborn for exemple)

Installing one mod at a time to make sure that verythings works before you install another is a pretty good idea in the future.

As for the quickest way to remove all mods, that depends on how you installed these mods...
Mods you installed with Nexus mod manager only needs to be deactivated, and can then be reactivated again one by one. Otherwise, it might be best to make a complete "clean" reinstall of the game. Uninstall the game normally, but before you reinstall it, look for your old skyrim installation folder which is likely left, and delete everything inside which wasn't removed during the uninstallation. THEN you can reinstall it again. Oh, and make sure to desubscribe all the mods you use from the workshop.

That's easy. Remove the game, and reinstall a fresh, clean one.

I've found it best not to activate any mods until you exit Helgen. If you have a mod that assists character creation you can probably run that, but I would get out of the opening sequence, save, and then activated the rest judiciously.

So to uninstall is it delete local content? First time actually uninstalling a steam game XD

Or is it usual uninstall program sort of uninstalling?

Yes, right click the game in your library and select "delete local content". If you don't remember where you installed the game you might want to check that first before you uninstall the game though, so you know where to find the "skyrim" folder that will most likely stay even after you uninstall the game. Then you delete that folder manually after you uninstalled the game. What's left there are just the leftover files from your mods.

So uninstalled it and now no files at all, not even where steam apps had em, does this mean all good and clean install now?

If you don't have a steamapps/common/skyrim folder, then you are good to go yes.
