  2. Right click on Dota 2, and then click on Properties.

  3. Under General, click on 'SET LAUNCH OPTIONS'.

  4. Enter "-console", and click on 'OK'.

  5. Launch Dota 2. Once you are in the game, click on the settings button on the top - left hand corner.

  6. Under Hotkeys, click on 'TO ADVANCED HOTKEYS'.

  7. On the right hand side, under 'INTERFACE' you will see console. Check if the key-bind is '\', if not set it as that.

  8. Once you are done, go back to the main menu, and click '\'. You will notice a window that pops up. This is the console.
