Starfield is many things, but for one, it’s a damn good looking game. While it’s nothing groundbreaking, the sceneries and attention to detail are truly astounding. And sometimes, it’s nice to just take a leisurely stroll down the road and take in the sights. For console players, this is done by simply pushing the left stick slightly forward, as you would in any game in order to walk. Sadly, PC gamers don’t have joystick luxuries, and keyboards only allow you to run or be standing still. So let’s watch the sunset and take a look at how to toggle walk in Starfield.

Walking in Starfield might be something that you as a PC player have already come across accidentally. And while you can’t normally walk with mouse a keyboard, Bethesda has given PC players a button to toggle walking. This can come in handy when you need to follow an NPC that walks as fast as a snail runs.

You can press ‘CapsLock’ on PC in order to toggle walk in Starfield. Doing so will make your character walk as long as you press ‘W’, but you can still run if you choose to press shift. Since it is a toggle and not a hold, players can press the button again in order to go back to a normal jog instead of a run. Furthermore, players might want to consider rebinding the toggle button, as it is close to many other button presses in game. This could leave you in a very scary predicament if you accidentally toggle walking while running away from a Terrormorph.
