How to Enable Cheats in Minecraft

Cheats usually have a bad reputation in video games, but in Minecraft, at least on a single player world, cheats are required to change between game modes and use commands. Today I’ll show you how to enable cheats in Minecraft, whether in a new world or an existing one.

Why Should You Enable Cheats in Minecraft

As I said earlier, enabling cheats in Minecraft allows you to change game modes and use commands.

Change Game Modes

Different game modes have different advantages. Builders, for example, often use Creative mode so they can access all the blocks and not worry about hostile mobs. Spectator mode is great for observing the world in a passive way.

Use Commands

Minecraft commands can completely transform your experience in Minecraft. Whether you want to locate a certain biome or point of interest, set the time of day, or even enable keep inventory in case you die – there’s a command for that!
