How to turn on cheats with commands in Minecraft for PC

Minecraft is a game that lets you activate all kinds of cheats thanks to commands. These commands are activated from the game chat bar, we will explain how to do it. Of course, activating tricks with commands in Minecraft is an option that you must have enabled at the moment you create a new world. Only then, this option appears. If you do not mark it, it will be impossible to do so later.

It is important to know that if you tick this option, you will not be able to unlock any of the achievements, as it is considered to adulterate the game.

With your new world created with the tricks enabled, access the game. Once there, press the T key on your keyboard, you will see how a small text editor opens at the bottom of the screen.

Now, you only have to enter the command of the cheat you want to use. For example, one of the most common commands is the one that lets you switch between survival mode and creative mode. As you can imagine, in the first one, your character can die, in the second one not. Type /gamemode creative and press the Enter key to enter the creative mode.
