Skyrim Key Helper

Skyrim Key Helper will allow you to change many key binds that are otherwise not availible through the in-game interface.


Download at:


If you subscribe/downloaded from the Workshop you will have to open SKH.bsa, and extract the files, then rename the SkyrimKeyHelper.exe.dat to SkyrimKeyHelper.exe

Really, it is just easier to go to and download the file in the Optional Files section until the Workshop better supports utilites.

How to Use:
1. Choose a category from the list at the top.
2. Choose a command from the box below.
3. Uncheck the "Use the in-game assignment for this command" if you want to overwrite a Main control
4. Remove the existing bound key if applicable.
5. Select the desired key, mouse button, or alias for that command and click the Add button.
6. Repeat 1 through 5 until finished.
7. Click Save & Write Changes.

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 or greater (comes with Windows Vista and 7)

Subscribe the Mod. Start Skyrim and let it download the mod. After that, close Skyrim and navigate to your install location of Skyrim (\Steam\Steamapps\common\Skyrim\Data\). There should be a File called SkyrimKeyHelper-Mod (or somthing like that). I think you still have to extract the Files. Not quite shure, I did this a long time ago. After that you can open the folder and inside it, there is a .exe. Just open that one and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps you. (Sorry if my sentences are not quite corregt. English is not my mother tongue)

this mod is garbage, cant even use naga hex mouse with it, and my inventory doesnt even have a delete button, and nothing in the key binding system allows me to bind it. what a waste of time

you'd need to use autohotkey to get what you are trying to do to work. i made a script a while back that does it but it would need editing to the specific keys you want.

Just tried. It doesn't seem to work... I have 'V' set on both R attack and L attack, but when I press V it just readies the left hand spell. I can then hold V and the left mouse button to dual cast, but that isn't any better than having to click mouse 1 and mouse2 at the same time. Halp?

So where are the key bindings stored exactly? It must not be in an INI file or you could just edit it with a text editor. But it can't be in the savegame either or you'd have to set up new key bindings every time you started a new playthrough, and I don't think that's the case.
What I'm looking to do, is to bind left hand attack and right hand attack to one button, so that I can just press, for example, V, and if I've got a spell in each hand it'll dual cast. Is this possible?
