If you’re stuck in the crouch position in Skyrim, head over to any interactable object like a chair, workbench, or any piece of furniture, and interact with it. Then, get up from it or move forward to stand up. Alternatively, you can try loading the game from the save point before this glitch took place.

This error may occur if you save the game while sneaking. Some players faced this issue inside the draugr or other dungeons. In these dungeons, you may not find any piece of furniture. In this case, look for an ore vein or a bench. Any kind of interactable object that forces animation will fix this issue.

Many players tried fixing the issue by re-loading the game, walking to another area, turning off the console, and restarting it. However, these methods will not work. Going back to the save point before the glitch happens works as well. However, you may lose all the progress after the point. So we recommend you use the furniture method.
