  2. Navigate to Library tab
  3. Right click Dota 2
  4. Select Properties
  5. Navigate to General tab
  6. Click Set Launch Options...
  7. Enter -console in the text field
  8. Run Dota 2

  2. Add the following: con_enable 1
  3. Launch Dota 2

You can find a list of console commands here. However, editing commands in the console is not saved, so you have to edit it every time, when you launch the game. You can create a file named autoexec.cfg in ...\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota\cfg and add some commands there. They will then be executed every time you start the game.
