Getting lost in the game called Minecraft can be frustrating whether you are in a single player world of a multiplayer one. While it can be an annoying experience, sometimes it can also be deadly. Fortunately, as a player, you are allowed to travel from one place to another. Here is everything that you will have to know to easily teleport to a certain place in the game with a command block.
Supported platforms of teleporting
The /teleport command is available in some versions of Minecraft, such as:

Requirements to use the teleport feature
In order to run the game command in the game, you will have to turn cheats on in your world.
Steps to teleport in Minecraft on PC
- The first thing that you will need to do is to launch Minecraft on your computer and select a world that you want to load.
- Then, click on the option saying “Single player” and then choose the creative world to load. You can also load the new world by choosing the Create New World option that is located at the bottom of the screen. Keep in mind that the creative world should have the cheats enabled.
- The next thing is to click on the Play Selected World option so that the selected world will be loaded. To make a new world, you will have to make sure that you select “Creative mode”. Now it is time for you to click on the Creative New World option for the second time to load the world.
- In the fourth step, you should determine the place that you want to teleport to. There are a few coordinates in the game: X, Y, and Z. They are really useful to find the location of a certain player. The X one is located to the east or west of the spawn point. The Y one is known as the elevation, which is located right above the bedrock. As for the Z one, it is to the north or south of the spawn point. Remember that Y:63 is the sea level and your current coordinates in the game are able to be seen by pressing the keys combination F3, Fn+F3 for Windows and Mac, or Alt+Fn+F3 for those who use newer Mac systems.
- After choosing a coordinate, it is the perfect time for you to load the console by using the “/” key on your keyboard.
- In the teleport command, please enter “teleport name x y z” into the console. Do not forget that the “name” should be replaced with your username and the “X” should be replaced with the east or west coordinate to where you want to travel. Just like “X”, both “Y” and “Z” also have to be replaced to vertical coordinate and north or south coordinate respectively. Here is what the command might look like: /teleport mineuser 0 23 65. The distance will rise towards either the east or south when you choose a positive value for “X” and “Z”. On the other hand, the distance will rise towards the west of north if the negative value is used.
- Once everything is done, the last thing that you will have to do is to press Enter and your character will be teleported to the chosen coordinates.
Teleporting players in Minecraft
What makes teleporting in Minecraft more fun is the fact that they allow teleporting a player to another one. Here is the example of the command that you can use. If you want to teleport Evans to Sam, the command that you can use is /teleport Evans Sam.
