How To Use Minecraft Commands And Cheats
Minecraft is more about customizing your world, it gives you an avenue to design a utopian scenario which may never happen in real life but you have the power to digitally create something authentic and reflective of your own nature.
Cheats and commands in Minecraft helps to take off some of the limitations that game has on players, you can use cheats to level up or get something that was not possible to get in the game at that particular moment.
To enter Minecraft commands, you will need to press the (/) key to open up the chat window. Once it is on the screen you can then enter the commands there. Using the up and down keys help to scroll previous commands enter so that you do not have to type the entire thing again.
Pressing Tab key will show you the possible options that you can cycle through for the command.
You will need to enable cheats in order for them to work, most single-player games will have them disabled by default. To enable them you will have to open the game to LAN and then select “Allow Cheats”. This won’t be turned off until you leave your world.
There are shortcuts for individual player prompts that you need to remember as it will help you select specific targets:
@p = the nearest player to you
