KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS in MINECRAFT
Do you want to become an expert in Minecraft? Then you can’t miss this video tutorial in which we’ll show you all the tricks you can do with the mouse to manage your inventory, trade items with villagers and much more.
If you are new to the game or have never discovered these shortcuts, you are missing out on a great advantage. Within the game, most of these tricks are not explained and this can greatly affect novice players. But don’t worry! In this video tutorial, we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
Let’s start by going over the tricks you can do both in the inventory and in a container, such as a chest or a barrel. The most basic move that you can do is to left-click on an object in any slot. Now you can drop it in another slot by clicking again or drop it to the ground by clicking outside the interface.
You can also drop an object by placing the mouse pointer over it and pressing the “Q” key. If you also hold down the “control” key and then “q”, you will drop the entire stack. Another way to move objects within the inventory is by using the famous “shift + left click” combination. This way, by holding down the “shift” key and clicking on the different objects, they will move between the inventory and the container interface.
If you use a chest, you can also do the same inside the inventory, which will make the objects move between the quick access bar and the storage area. In the case of doing so on an equippable item, such as armor or a shield, they will be automatically equipped.
Using the above combination, you can also move at the same time all the objects of the same type between the chest and the inventory, or vice versa. To do this, the first thing you will have to do is select an object of which you have several and, once you have it, keeping the “shift” key pressed, double-click on the same type of object. As you can see, they will all go into the chest at once.
Another interesting and really useful trick is to double-click on a specific type of object that you have scattered around the inventory. This way, you will select it in the same slot until you reach the maximum state of the selected object. For example, a wooden sword, whose maximum state is 16 objects.
Let’s talk now about the different ways to distribute objects in the inventory. Starting from a stack you have selected, you can drop a single object from that stack by right-clicking on any slot. You can also distribute a single object from the stack to all the slots you pass the pointer over, by holding down the right click. If instead you hold down the left click and drag, you will evenly distribute the objects in the stack for each slot through which you pass the pointer, keeping only the remaining objects.
Another very useful trick in the world of crafting is the possibility of creating several stacks of the same object at the same time. To do this, simply place the object you want to duplicate in one of the crafting boxes and, holding down the shift key, left click on the same box. In this way, stacks of the same object will be created until the materials are exhausted.
As for the exchanges with villagers, there are several tricks that can facilitate the task of getting the objects we need. One of them is to use a bed to force a villager to change his profession. To do this, we must place a bed and wait for a villager to use it as his resting place. By doing so, his profession will change and we will be able to access his exchange inventory.
Another trick related to exchanges with villagers is to get better deals. To do this, we must get the villager to have a high level of happiness, which is achieved by placing blocks of his profession near him or making him carry out his main activity (for example, if he is a farmer, make him cultivate his fields). In this way, we will get the villager to offer us items at a lower price or even exclusive items that do not appear in his normal inventory.
