Launch Skyrim with SKSE through the Skyrim launcher
By AshFennix
SKSE is annoying to launch seprate, so here is a fix for that

Please don't contact me over this guide, if this one doesn't work, look for another guide.
Just download this mod
(Old outdated way)SKSE through the launcher - Method #1
First, if you don't have SKSE, download here:

1) Go to your Skyrim folder, which most likely in -"C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Skyrim\"
2) Rename the TESV.exe to Skyrim.exe
3) Rename SKSE_loader.exe to TESV.exe
4) Go to \data\skse\ - if the skse folder doesn't exist, create it.
5) Make a file called skse.ini and write this in it


6)Save file
7) Start Skyrim via steam and hit Play

8) Stop adding me on steam to ask for help.

No need for the edit to skse.ini
Works perfectly fine without it.
If it serves a useful purpose, please explain.

As of about April, so long as your Steam Overlay is enabled, Steam will automatically launch the game using SKSE for you (whether you use the SKSE or Steam launcher).

Or even better than renaming files yourself, use this program:

I think it would be beneficial to everyone if the link was added to this guide. This way ppl who are bad at renaming files would ask less stupid questions.
