Minecraft is one of the most popular game-building programs in history. It’s been downloaded more than a hundred million times and sold over three hundred fifty million copies across all platforms. In this post, we’ll look at six Minecraft shortcuts that will save you time and make your experience in the game even better.
1. In the place of Ctrl + V, use Ctrl + Shift + V
In the place of Ctrl + V, use Ctrl + Shift + V
This shortcut is used to copy text. It’s faster than the traditional Ctrl + V and it also works in most text editors. You can use it to copy text from a website and paste it into Minecraft.
2. Use alt + shift + mousewheel up to make text bigger.
- Use alt + shift + mousewheel up to make text bigger
- Use ctrl + shift to make text smaller
Use the mousewheel to increase or decrease the size of the text. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts listed in this section:
- Alt + Shift increases the size of your text
- Ctrl decreases it
3. F3+H can be used to show or hide hitboxes.
The hitbox is the invisible box around each block. If a player is inside the hitbox of a block, they can interact with that block. Hitboxes are different for every block, meaning it’s possible to stand on top of one block but not another. For example, if you’re standing on top of a full block and want to place a torch next to it, you’ll have to move away from the side or back of the full block before being able to place your torch since that would put your character in its hitbox. Hitboxes are useful for finding out where you can stand or where you can place a block without accidentally building inside yourself! You can hide hitboxes by pressing F3.
4. Use the middle button to teleport when your mouse is on a block that you’re looking at, and you’ll be sent there in one go! (caveat for people with single button mouse)

For those of us who grew up as gamers, this is a common feature. For others, it might seem odd or new. What’s important here is that this works well in Minecraft, but also works just as well in other games or web browsers—so use it whenever you want quick access to something!
5. Remember that you can copy and paste text in chat by pressing enter and then clicking shift on the left side of your chat history
- Press enter to start a new line.
- Click shift, then move your mouse over to the left of your chat history and click it again. This will select everything you’ve typed so far.
- Finally, click shift again to paste it into the game!
6. You can quickly create a repeating command block by copying and pasting an impulse command block while holding shift.

- Alt + Shift + Mousewheel up is a cheat to move items up in the inventory, which is useful if you’ve got an item that’s too far down to reach.
- The middle button on your mouse will teleport you to where it was clicked, which is useful for getting across large distances quickly or escaping enemies (or mobs).
- Shift key can be used in combination with any command block, so that when one command block activates it will activate all of them at once!
