Wrong or unable to use key when typing in console

Question

I've noticed when using the console that at least 3 keys don't work or do the wrong thing. The quote key '/" doesn't do anything, =/+ don't either,  and line & forward dash key \/| does ] instead. I have little idea what could be doing this, googling the issue says that some keyboard from outside of the US register differently but I've got no idea why this would happen to me. Does anyone have an idea why this is going on and how to fix it?

Go into your OS settings for devices > typing and make sure it all looks kosher. Same with Time & Language settings. Try restarting.

Also, I never use or need the keystrokes mentioned in the console, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of those aren't' intended to work.

OS is fine, that was one of the things I tried finding out if that was causing problems first. It's notably just Skyrim that has this issue, I can use the keys otherwise fine.

Quote does work for people, it used to for me, but now it doesn't and it's annoying because if you're looking up a specific item in the console, say an Iron Greatsword, you can do (help "iron greatsword") and it will show up the specific item rather than you have to do (help iron #) because the console doesn't understand words with a space between them when searching.

I would root out any mods you may have installed that modify the console or anything related to the console (like More Informative Console). Perhaps disable these or check their INIs. Maybe try a different keyboard to rule that out.

      ENB makes my character's skin look really really pale and kind of makes the entire game look cold.  Which settings would I be looking at to make the colors a little warmer?

      I see in the guide it says to install LW dawnbreaker with dwarven/dwemer sheath but for the enb light installation instructions is says to choose default dawnbraker sheath and not alt sheath...I was just wondering why that may be.

      Cathedral - 3D Tundra Cotton by Dr Jacopo

      The vanilla cotton plant is modeled somewhat after a flowering commercial cotton plant: Google Images of cotton plants
      Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim depicts it after the tundra cotton plant, which is more like a grass. Google Images of tundra cotton
      This mod blends the two, giving it the leaves of a commercial cotton plant and the flower of a tundra cotton plant.
      I consider this a significant deviation from vanilla, so I would not recommend for Step, but it looks fantastic.
      Compares:
      Vanilla --> Cathedral Plants --> Hybrid's HD Plants --> Cathedral - 3D Tundra Cotton
