If I buy Skyrim via Steam, and then install mods, will other people with whom I'm friends on steam be able to see any of the mods I have installed? I am friends with relatives and coworkers on Steam and I don't want them to see that I'm installing sexy mods from here- it would be embarassing!

No. Mods are not visible to your Steam friends.

Neither DLCs. Only the amount of time played and the achievements are.

Doubt it, but don't want to speak too sure, as there's always potential security holes and one of them might expose the mods you're subscribed to on Steam Workshop. Probably not the case for locally installed mods, such as LL mods.

If you use a ENB be careful. To disable and Enable it using hotkeys you need to press F12 which is also the key to take screenshots unless you change it.

You will be safe. The only way they can know what mods you're using, is if they have your computer/HD or possibly by checking on mods you've subscribed to on and only on steam. The solution, don't use steam's horrible mod system.

 

When you "subscribe" to a mod on steam, i believe it adds you to a public list of people that subscribe to that mod which your friends can look at. However this only applies to mods gotten from steam(which you shouldn't do). There is no public list if you go to a 3rd party site like Lovers or Nexus and your friends can't see what mods are in your data folder.

iirc people won't even see your screenshots unless you upload them.

When you subscribe to a mod on Steam, you can zip it and then load it into MO or NMM, and then you should immediately unsubscribe on Steam.

The only danger is them being annoyed at you starting up Skyrim 40 times a day because you're testing mods and the message of you playing it keeps popping up.

Whenever this happens I always set my status to 'offline'.

I usually do too.

Unless my only friend online is the one I enjoy bothering.

I have encountered different issue.
I bought Skyrim LE few years ago, but I have never instaled even played it. I have cracked wersion, mostly because i don't like launchers and steam file structure (steam/steamapps/...). Since then I haven't bought any other game until November when I bought F4.

A few weeks ago I noticed that Steam records how many hours I've played in Skyrim. Game is marked as not installed, no achievements are recorded just playing time.

How is it even posible?

PS: Sorry for my english.
