How to use Console Commands in Minecraft

To use console commands in Minecraft, check the Allow/Activate Cheats option when creating your world. The button to press now depends on the platform you are playing the game. Here's a list of what you'll need to press to access the console command menu:

  • Xbox: Press right on the D-Pad.
  • Nintendo Switch: Press the right direction button on your Joy-Con or right on the D-Pad of your Pro Controller.
  • PC/Mac (Windows 10 or Java): Press T or the forward slash (/) key.

If you're on a PS4, you can't enter commands. You can only change a few options and must have host privileges.

Minecraft Flying Command - How to fly in Minecraft

There is no direct command in Minecraft that will make you fly. By starting the game in Creative mode, flying is available by default, and you can turn it on by double-pressing the Space bar. If you're in Survival mode, you can still change the mode of the game using the "/gamemode creative" command. You can go into Spectator mode if you want to fly even faster (on PC). This requires you to press "F3 + N" at once and allows you to fly around freely and go through walls. You can scroll your mouse wheel up or down to increase or decrease the speed. This is the fastest way to get around other than using the teleport command.
