Enable JavaScript (if disabled)

Before you log in in Vortex and link your Nexus Mods account, make sure that JavaScript is enabled in your browser settings.

To enable JavaScript in Google Chrome:

  • On your computer, open Chrome.
  • At the top right, click the three dots and go to "Settings".
  • In the search bar, type in "JavaScript".
  • Click on "Content Settings" and then "Java".
  • Either toggle "allowed", or add an exception for NexusMods.com.

How to log in

Open Vortex and click the red icon in the top right corner.

In the popup window, click on "Log In On Website" which will open NexusMods.com in your default browser.


Click the "Authorise" button to allow Vortex to sign in. Congratulations! You have successfully linked your Nexus Mods account to Vortex.

I am getting an "Authorisation Failed" error. What went wrong?


The authorisation might fail if a timeout occurs, usually when more than 10 minutes have passed between Vortex opening the authorisation page in your web browser, and you clicking the "Authorise" button. In that case, simply close and restart Vortex and attempt again, ensuring that you click the "Authorise" button as soon as possible after sending a request from Vortex.
