  • Convenient inventory management with a feature-rich panel that supports full-text search, sorting and extended data columns.

  • 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.
