So to take the hard work of crafting and speed up your inventory navigation, here's list of clever Minecraft cheats - which are implemented using console commands.

It's not as hard as it sounds, however the entire process is explained in the following article. You can also view our guide on how to manage the Minecraft fox and also how to enable Ray-tracing within the block builder.

First the fact that cheats can only be used on PC. Console players must continue grinding the old-fashioned method. Furthermore, these cheats are only compatible with worlds with cheats enabled - you'll be asked for this when you create a new world, or opening an online game with a single player on LAN and selecting the option to allow Cheats'.

Once you have your cheat enabled world installed, you'll need to type in some commands. The first step is to press the C key to raise the command bar.

The command bar is where you'll enter the commands, and each must be preceded with a forward slash (/). You'll also need to select targets to be the recipients of your cheats. Rather than type out the full names you can make use of the shortcuts for a shorthand target selector:

@p = the closest player - @r = random player

@a = All Players

- @e = all entities

@s = The person who executes the command

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