I know how to do this on NMM but am still trying to learn vortex ( I just installed and starterd using it a few hours ago).

If I do a manual download, do I download to steam/common/skyrim/data or do I download to the folder vortex video told me to create(games/skyrim)?

And I assume once it's downloaded to the proper folder I can select the open folder at the top of the mods section, find where I downloaded it and choose install?

Thanks in advance for any helpful responses and big thanks to the people who make mods. Without modders games like Skyrim (as great as they are) would not stay so popular for as long as they do.

NEVER Download Mods to your game Data folder

Download the mod to the DOWNLOAD folder you set up in Vortex.

Then you can click on INSTALL FROM FILE, and Vortex will open the download folder, where you can pick the mod.

Why aren't you just downloading the mod with Vortex?


You can check where your download folder is from this tab

If you are downloading from a site other than Nexusmods, you won't have the option to download with Vortex.

Download where your downloads normally go, open that folder, and drag the mod to the Vortex Drop files area.

At that point, it will be exactly as if you downloaded using Vortex, and the directory shown above applies.
