Enabling Minecraft cheats will let you accomplish certain operations on Minecraft quiet easily without having to wait a while to accomplish or do them. For example, a cheat can help you to change the weather condition, switch between survival and creative modes, and even change the time of the day in Minecraft. You can make all this possible by typing specific commands in Minecraft if you have cheats enabled. In this article we are going to look at the steps required to activate cheats in Minecraft in both single player and multiplayer modes.
Minecraft cheats are not available in all the versions or variations of Minecraft. Cheats are currently supported in Java, Pocket, Xbox, Nintendo, Windows 10, and Education editions. If you are using any one of these Minecraft versions, you are good to go
If you enable cheats, you won’t be able to receive any achievements in the game.
To activate Cheats in Minecraft
The process to activate cheats in Minecraft varies based on the platform your playing on. So follow the steps given under certain platforms to enable cheats on them.
To enable cheats on Minecraft Java Edition (Single Player)
- Create a new world.
- Click on More world Options… on the menu.
- Click on the Allow cheats button.
- Create your world.
In the newly created world, cheats will be available. But what if you already created a Minecraft world and doesn’t want to leave it? Don’t worry, follow these steps.
To enable cheats on an already active Minecraft world
- Go to the Minecraft menu.
- Click on Open to LAN.
- Click on Allow cheats.
Now you can start using cheats on your Minecraft session. But the problem is that as soon as you restart the game and start playing again, you will notice that cheats are not working. So you will have to repeat this every time you want to use cheats. It is the only way you can enable cheats on an active Minecraft world that didn’t have cheats enabled while creating it. But it is extremely useful if you just want to use the cheat for a single time probably for something like returning to your base without running through all those 3000 Minecraft blocks.
Using Minecraft cheat on Multiplayer
If you are playing Minecraft on a multiplayer server that is created by you, you will have the operator status by default that will provide you the ability to run commands. So you can run Minecraft cheats without any additional steps. But if you are not the owner of this server, for every user that needs to run cheats, the owner will have to run the command /op username. This command will provide the operator status to the user and let them run cheats. Be sure to replace username with your real Minecraft username.
To activate Minecraft cheats on Pocket/Windows 10/Edu Editions
- Create a new Minecraft world.
- Turn on the Cheats option in the Game settings section.
- Create your world.
That’s it. You have successfully activated cheats on your Minecraft and can do things much easier and quicker now.
