To skip the Starfield intro videos, you need to delete or rename a video file in the game’s main folder. Follow the steps below to do so.

First, we need to access the Starfield installation folder.


  • Click on Library on Steam
  • Right-click on Starfield
  • Click Manage and select Browse local files
Right-click on Starfield > Manage > Browse local files
Manage > Browse local files

Xbox App for PC

  • Launch the Xbox App

Installed > Starfield > Three Dots > Manage
  • Select the FILES tab, and click on BROWSE

This will take you to where Starfield is installed.

  • Here, open the Data folder, followed by Videos
