Only “rented” mods from Bethesda/Steam will appear in a list in-game, where you have to check them to apply them. You can tell if a mod is working by looking at the output in the game. The easy way is to check SMIM (I assume you include that in your downloads).
Do you need Vortex loot?
Loot is built into Vortex by default and does not need to be installed separately.
