Managing inventory

Stacks can be grabbed by pressing left click on the stack, and split by pressing right click. If the stack is an odd quantity, then it will leave the smaller half (for instance, a stack of 7 will leave 3 items in the slot and grab 4). Conversely, while holding a stack in the inventory, left click will place the full stack in the slot, and right click will place just one item. Double clicking an item will grab up to a full stack from all the items within the inventory.

Holding ⇧ Shift and clicking on the item will send the item from your hotbar to the main 27 slots, or vice versa. Doing so while a block`s inventory (chest, dispenser, etc.) is open will send the item stack immediately from your inventory into the block that you have open or vice versa. Holding ⇧ Shift and double clicking a stack will move all items of that kind between your inventory and the block, or your inventory and your hotbar, however the player`s cursor must already be holding an item for this to work. The item held is irrelevant.

Pressing 19 will switch the item hovered over with the cursor with the item in that slot of the hotbar, or move the item from one to the other if either slot is empty.

Dragging items around with the left mouse button will equally divide the stack over the dragged-over slots, while dragging item stacks around with the right mouse button will place one of that stack in each dragged-over slot, in both cases only if the slot is empty or contains the same item being dragged.

Pressing C+1-9 in Creative mode will save the current toolbar in the Saved Toolbars tab. It can be loaded with X+1-9.

Pressing drop while the mouse is hovering over an item in the inventory or a container will drop one item. Holding Ctrl and pressing drop while hovering over a slot in the inventory or container that has one or more items, will consequently drop the entire stack of items. While venturing without the full inventory open, the same can be applied for the selected item(s) from the hotbar. Items can also be dropped into the world by clicking outside the inventory window while holding item with your cursor.

Pressing a number key while hovering over an item will instantly place one full stack of that item into the hotbar slot that corresponds with the number.

Overview

A player inventory in Minecraft for PC.

The inventory after patch 1.9

The inventory is opened and closed by pressing the E key by default, which can be changed from the in-game options menu. on PlayStation, the Y button on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, the X button on the Wii U, and ••• on mobile devices all open the inventory. The Esc key also closes the inventory on PC.

Crafting is done in the 2⃗2 grid on PC, but in the console editions it is simplified in a separate crafting interface; as a result, the 2⃗2 grid and its output slot are not present. However, in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 editions, a cursor feature is available.

The inventory consists of 4 armor slots, 27 storage slots, and 9 hotkey slots (this group of slots sometimes called "hot bar" or "quick-access bar"). Items in the hotkey slots can be selected during gameplay using the keyboard (keys 1–9) or mouse wheel, placed, or wielded with the mouse buttons on PC. On PS3 this bar is scrolled through with R1 and L1, and items are placed or wielded with R2 and L2. As of update 1.9, there is also an off-hand slot for a Shield.

Some items stack up to a maximum of 64 in one slot. Blocks and food are stackable but tools (with the exception of clocks and compasses) are not. Snowballs, eggs and Ender Pearls are special and can only stack up to 16. To split a stack, right-click the stack (in PC), or press₠ on PS3. This leaves half the stack on the square and allows the player to move the other half. Conversely, while holding a stack in the inventory, right click/square can be used to place just one item anywhere on the inventory grid.

One way to organize and craft items is by holding Lshift₠(on PC), or pressing₠ (on PS3)₠and clicking on the item; doing so will change the item`s position to the hotbar, the inventory slots, to the armor slots if the item can be worn by the player or if the item is stackable, it will stack along with other equal items. Moreover,₠holding₠Lshift₠and clicking on an item/pressing circle₠while a chest is open will immediately move the item(s) into the chest. Also, if the player Lshift clicks/presses₠₠on an item in the chest, the stack will enter their inventory. These features are collectively₠called quick move₠on PS3, and also allow quick movement of items to Furnaces, Anvils, Brewing Stands₠and Enchantment Tables₠in the same way as chests, but only for items that can be used in them.

Items can be dropped into the world by clicking outside the inventory window while holding items, by closing the inventory with items either held or placed in the 2x2 crafting grid or by pressing Q (this can be changed in the Control Settings). Items dropped in the game world will disappear after 5 minutes if not collected, but items placed using the right mouse button will not. Chests can be used to extend the player`s inventory space, but they must be placed in the game world before they can be used. Armor is only considered equipped when it is in an armor slot; when in any of the regular inventory slots, it is not considered "worn" and does not offer protection. Inventory is saved on multiplayer servers, so that players` personal inventory, chests, etc. are saved when they leave, allowing the players to continue where they left off. Items have tooltips displaying their name if the cursor is hovered over the item.

How the inventory looks in 1.12 (upcoming)

In Creative Mode, the inventory contains all blocks and items from Survival, along with some others that can`t be found, like spawn eggs. The player can pick up blocks from here to use endlessly or drop things right in the menu to remove them. Clicking on something more than once will give them a stack of that block or item. Right-clicking a block or item will give the player a full stack. The Creative mode inventory menu is sorted into 10 sections labeled on tabs: `Building Blocks`, `Decoration Blocks`, `Redstone`, `Transportation`, `Miscellaneous`, `Foodstuffs`, `Tools`, `Combat`, `Brewing`, and `Materials`. There is also a search box and survival inventory tab. In PS3 the creative mode inventory is the normal inventory, and the Creative mode item list is instead accessed through the creative mode interface, which replaces the crafting interface in Creative Mode.

Using the search tab on PC, one can access any levels of enchanted books, whereas only books of the maximum levels can be found in the `Tools` and `Combat` sections of the inventory.
