Why is the Starfield console not opening?

The Starfield console is not opening because the key to open the console is different for every keyboard layout.

For example, if you’re using a US keyboard layout, the key to open the console is “~”.

However, if you’re using an European keyboard, you need to press the “@” key instead.

Alternatively, you can switch your keyboard layout to the US layout to use the “~” key.
