How to Enter the Minecraft Console Commands
Just press the forward-slash key (/) and a small window will pop up. Enter the code, press enter and this will be enough to have your command activated.
Shorthand Code Commands for Minecraft
Below we give you some shorthand codes so that you do not need to type various player names. It will save you the trouble of typing names like “Sniper_Boar_Dev_34” each time someone joins in.
- @p – the player nearest to you.
- @r – a random player.
- @a – all players.
- @e – all entities in the world.
- @s – yourself.
Minecraft Clone Command
- /clone <x1> <y1> <z1> <x2> <y2> <z2> <x> <y> <z>
This command enables you to copy a selection of blocks and move it to your chosen location. It’s handy when you are building, e.g., a city are and want to have many identical buildings in different areas. Start with “<x1> <y1> <z1>”. “<x2> <y2> <z2>” is where you finish, and with “<x> <y> <z>” you point out where you wish the cloned blocks to be located.
For instance: /clone 100 234 -10 200 100 0 300 200 100.
Minecraft Difficulty Command
- /difficulty <difficulty>
Its function is to change the in-game difficulty. Instead of the latter section of the code enter one of these:
For instance: /difficulty peaceful
Minecraft Effect Command
- /effect <player> <effect> [seconds] [amplifier] [hideParticles]
This command adds a status effect to the selected player. The conditions “[seconds]”, “[amplifier]”, and “[hideParticles]” are not obligatory, so you can disregard them, however, you use them if you decide to change the length, or the strength of the effect, and you also need to decide if the effect shows as particles. When you decide that a player no longer needs an effect, just type “/effect <player> clear”.
For instance: /effect PCGamer water_breathing 30
Minecraft Enchant Command
- /enchant <player> <enchantment ID> [level]
When you want an enchantment in addition to the item the player is holding, use this command. It can be enchantment you choose to have, they can be selected from a book or enchant table. Take a look at the list of Enchantment IDs.
For instance: /enchant PCGamer minecraft:smite 1
Minecraft Exp Modifier Command

Grants a number of experience points to the targeted player. If you prefer to add levels (understandable, as it’s easier in case of enchanting) type “/xp <amount>L [player]”.
For instance: /xp 100L PCGamer
Change the Gamemode Command
- /gamemode <mode>

For instance: /gamemode Survival
Minecraft Give Item Command
- /give <player> <item> [amount]
Adds an item to the player’s inventory. You will need this if you want start a run having all of the diamond gear. Remember that the amount section is only applicable to stackable items. That means, you cannot have 100 diamond swords in one go, no matter how great it sounds. To see all of the IDs, check out the list here.
For instance: /give PCGamer diamond_sword 1
If a command doesn’t work, help is available here:
- /help [command name]

For instance: /setworldspawn 100 80 0.
Stop Time from Changing

This completely turns the daylight cycle off so it’ll always be the current time of day. To reenable the cycle, replace “false” with “true.”
Spawn a Mob
- /summon <entity_name> [x] [y] [z]
Brings a mob to a designated location. Get rid of the “[x] [y] [z]” at the end and you can have the mob spawn on top of you if you wish. Be careful though – if you’re spawning the Wither have to be quick to get away to save your skin.
Minecraft Teleport Command
