To take the tedious work out of crafting and speed up your inventory management, here's a list of clever Minecraft cheats - accomplished by using console commands.

It's not as hard as it seems, however the entire process is explained in the following article. You can also check out our guide on how you can tame the Minecraft Fox and how to enable Ray-tracing within the block builder.

Firstly, as with most mods that are available, cheats are only available on PC and console gamers will have to grind in the traditional method. These can only be utilized in worlds with cheats enabled. This is why you will be asked when you create a new world or open a single-player LAN game and select 'Allow Cheats.

With your cheat-enabled world ready and loaded, all you need to do is type in some commands now - with the first step, pressing the 'C' key to bring up the command bar.

The command bar is where you enter commands. Each one has to be preceded by a forward-slash (/). You will also need to choose the targets that will get your cheats. However, rather than entering full names, you may make use of these shorthand target selection shortcuts.

- @p = nearest player - @r = random player

@a = All Players

- @e = all entities

- @s = the entity executing the command

The basics are now covered - you need to enter your desired cheater's code using the following console commands.
