How to skip the Sniper Elite 5 Intro videos on PC

Sniper Elite 5 is a tactical third-person shooter from Rebellion. With each Sniper Elite entry, we see more improvements, bigger maps, and a lot of slow-motion sniper shots. The game is out on PC through Steam, and Xbox Game Pass. It’s been a hit so far, and one of the better launches for the series. Though, if you are on the PC version, here is how you can skip the Sniper Elite 5 Intro videos to save some time.
