if you're playing in full screen and tab out sometimes when you tab back into the game it's just a black screen. Just alt-tab out and in again a second time to make it work.

found this on reddit so thought I'd post here


THE SPRINT BUTTONS ARE: PC=Alt, Xbox=LB, PS3=L2, you can also sprint on a horse

SAVE AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE F5 IS THE QUICK SAVE KEY

You can rebind all of your keys in the control menu

If you give your companion a torch they will use it at night-LINK

If you want to keep sprinting don't let your stamina run out fully as it takes a few seconds to starts regenerating

If you see oil on the ground there is usually a lamp you can knock on the ground to set the oil on fire

You can dismount a horse in the water and then mount it again to have regular speed-LINK

You can equip a pickaxe and "hit" the ore vein to start mining, likewise you can dualweild them to mine faster

Waiting (Press T) will fill up your Magika/Health/Stamina bar instantly

Try reading every book you see, the bigger the value of it, the more likely it has a free skill up or a quest inside waiting for you

To hide your UI while taking screenshots type in tm in console (~), then type it again to bring it back

Dragons will only land if you are in a clearing
You can take torches off the wall to make the room more dark if you are trying to sneak

When attacking with bow from far away press the sneak button to do double damage, even if you are not a sneaky character

Most items that you put inside your home will stay there, so you can safely decorate it however you like

Using Unrelenting force will stop any enemy casting/channeling

Every major city stables has a wagon which you can use to fastravel to other cities you've never been to

In most major holds there is a map with little flags on it that you can use to mark new places on your map

You can buy a dog form a breeder outside Markath for a small price

Your horse can climb up mountains that you couldn't on foot.

You can take keys from your companions to have access to their house

If the NPCs are asking you about your health ("feeling sick?" or "You feeling alright?") that means you have a disease, use a shrine to cleanse it, or craft a disease curing potion and drink it

Don't sell all of your magical weapons since you can disenchant them and level up your enchanting skill that way

You can place baskets on peoples head and then steal their stuff without them noticing -LINK

You can hotkey your favorite items by opening the favorite menu (Q), highlighting the item and click 1-8 buttons on your keyboard

Fire does the most raw damage,Frost and Shock do the same amount of damage, but ice drains stamina and slows the enemy, and Lightning drains magicka.

You can revive every living creature exceptdragons with the Reanimate spells in the Conjuration tree

Making Iron daggers and Leather Bracers is a quick way to level up early smithing, use them for enchanting skill ups or sell them to a vendor for speech skill ups

When you increase your stamina you also increase your maximum carry capacity by 5

By holding the "Use" key you can move items around.

When you trade armor to your companions they automatically equip it if its better then what they currently have.

Resting in a bed will give you rested status, allowing for bonus XP gain, restin in your own bed (inside your house) will give you a well rested status allowing for even more bonus XP

By wearing Amulet of Mara (which you can buy in Riften for 200g) you have an option to marry people, marriage provides all sorts of benefits for you. For more info on marriage and list of spouses SEE HERE

To see locations of quests on your map select them in your journal and hit M

To discover new dragon shout words talk to the Argenier the Greybeard leader in the High Hrothgar and he will give you a small side quest and direct you to a new world wall one a time.

You can fast travel while over encumbered with a horse

Here's a helpful hint:
on the Break of Dawn quest at Meridia's temple, make damn sure you kill all the necromancer boss's Shades. Otherwise, you will spend an hour like me trying to kill this jerk only to have him heal at the last second before death.
Turns out one of the shades got stuck behind a pillar and while he was alive, the boss was invincible. And did I mention the boss can more or less one-shot you at level 13?
After an hour and a near controller to screen incident I finally saw the shade, killed him and had the whole ordeal done 2 minutes later. Happy
