Elegant, PC-friendly UI mod for Skyrim with many advanced features. All improvements seamlessly integrate with the style of the original interface. Version 5 includes better crafting, enchanting, alchemy and smithing menus and several other enhancements.

  • Convenient inventory management with a feature-rich panel that supports full-text search, sorting and extended data columns and replaces Skyrim's basic item lists.
  • Version 5 extends this to all menus, including crafting, enchanting, alchemy and smithing.
  • A powerful, categorized favorites menu that still keeps true to the original idea of a fast, non-intrusive way to access your essential items. Eight customizable hotkey groups allow to explore playstyles that were way too tedious before.
  • The Mod Configuration Menu (MCM) to support user-friendly in-game customization. It's not just used by SkyUI, but by hundreds of other mods as well.
  • Full-text search and highlighting of discovered locations on the map.
  • Active effects are displayed directly in the HUD, instead of having to constantly open the magic menu. Highly customizable.
  • Gamepad support, and intuitive and efficient keyboard navigation.
  • Multi-language support for English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Czech and Japanese.

For a complete list, see the Features Overview.

Is there any way possible to disable the text notifications of the basic UI? I love SkyUI, but man it's annoying that it's placed so high in the left corner of the screen, when I do some alchemy for example, I can't see the top rows of texts at all from under the freaking ''You've made a potion of blahblah (2)''- notifications. Might be the wrong place to rant, but if anyone has a fix for this and they would share, that would be awesome.

It says that SKSE isn't working, but I have Legendary Edition Patch working, and SKSE is working fine. I don't see a new Skyrim patch. What's going on?

Dude, we all thought that. Then we took its arrow in the knee.

Hi guys, unfortunately SkyUI tells me it isn't working properly since the latest patch - it does load the inventory though but very much slower than the vanilla one.
Think this might just be a temporary bug or so

i never had issues with this mod! works just fine for me... the only issue i have really is the window size will not change to where i want it since i don't do full screen gaming. but i think that might be on the SKSE64's part... other than that, skyui works just fine!

You can use SkyUI-Away for that! It gets rid of the UI but keeps the MCM menus.
