How to use Elemental Sight in Genshin Impact – PC, Mobile, PS4

I can see it...

Elemental Sight is a helpful feature in Genshin Impact that allows you to see hidden details in the game's environment, such as resources, tracks, and quest areas. It is not required from players too often, so when a quest demands the usage of Elemental Sight, many players can become confused. This feature is crucial for completing certain quests like the Arataki Itto questline in Inazuma, as well as the Lost Book questline in Mondstadt. Here's how to use Elemental Sight in Genshin Impact.

PC Users

For PC users, Elemental Sight can be activated by holding down the middle mouse button. Elemental Sight can also be activated by clicking the eye-shaped icon next to the player's minimap. To click on this UI button, players must first hold down ALT, then select the eye-shaped icon.

This will enable Elemental Sight for several seconds, but it will shut off soon after. If standing still, Elemental Sight will continue unless the player moves or stops holding the middle mouse button. Once it is shut off, however, it can be reactivated once more to view the hidden objectives in the player's surroundings.
