Skyrim Mod Organizer is a tool to manage the different mods that can be used with the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is the successor of TES IV Mod Organizer.
Skyrim Mod Organizer was created as an alternative to the Creation Kit’s Data Files feature. It can also be used to manage other installed games.

Installing and Working with Skyrim Mods
Skyrim Mod Organizer is working pretty well for me so if you are new to Skyrim modding, we recommend that you use it. Once you have decided on the way you are going to handle your mods, follow the instructions listed below.
Using Nexus Mod Manager(NMM) for installation and managing of mods. The automatic installer is an excellent tool for this, but does not allow you to choose the dependencies of a mod. We recommend that you also check out the manual installation instructions below.
Using BSA files for better management. Adding a BSA to NMM is pretty simple, however you need to know that the NMM will not be able to automatically find and install mods with BSA files. As for manual installation, you can use Nexus Mod Manager or the Bat File which we have provided.
If you are using NMM, or want to learn how to manually add large mods like Hearthfire, Dawnguard or Dragonborn, then follow these simple steps:
1. Download mod from Nexus(get the .7z file) and extract the archive in your Skyrim root directory.
For example, C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim. You can create this folder if it doesn’t exist.
The Long & Short of it – How To Properly Uninstall Skyrim Mod Organizer and its Master File
Remove any mods that you have from Skyrim Nexus. Clean the saves that you have created in Skyrim. Remove any mods that are associated with the program you are uninstalling. This can usually be found at data/tools/…/mod organizer. Open the game and create a new save. Do not exit to desktop while removing the mod organizer master file or any other files from Skyrim, otherwise your saves will be lost along with the program you are uninstalling. Remove all logs for Mod Organizer for future reference.

Mod Organizer – Delete logs (may be overkill, but it’s what I did to be safe):
Open .minecraft / bin Delete the folder named .minecraft Navigate back to the parent folder named bin Right Click -> Open With -> Windows Explorer Locate Skyrim_ModOrganizer … Delete log.txt, ModOrganizer.log & txtsetup.log
Now delete the mod organizer master files (not the folders) from Skyrim/data & Skyrim/Plugins:
