 +==== Opening and closing ====
 +
 +To open/close the console, press the **Tilde** key (~) on your keyboard (typically found under the **Escape** key with most keyboard layouts).
 +
 +The console can be opened and closed with the ''​taskbar''​ command. You can bind the command to any event you wish to use for opening/​closing the console. **Tilde** is the default binding. (1.11+)

 +<​note>​When input focus is on the console command line, key bindings from the "​console"​ [[binding context]] are checked first. If a key is not defined there, it will be entered as text on the command line.</​note>​
