How To Open Coordinates In Minecraft On Mac

Share This:

Are you a Minecraft enthusiast using a Mac? Are you having difficulty opening coordinates in your game? Well, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we’ll provide detailed instructions on how to open coordinates for the Mac version of Minecraft.

First off, it’s important to know that the Mac version of Minecraft is different than other versions. The main difference is that the Mac version has an Fn (Function) key. This key allows users to access F1 through F12 in their Touch Bar. To open coordinates, press the Fn key and then press F3.

If your Mac keyboard does not have an Fn key, then no worries! You can still open coordinates—simply press F3 as normal. This will bring up your exact coordinates which are listed in the “XYZ” line.

For those using Pocket Edition (PE) on their Mac device, you can pause the game and select Settings in Game Settings. Scroll down to World Options and toggle the Show Coordinates button. This will display your exact coordinates on-screen.

We hope that this tutorial has been helpful for those of you playing Minecraft on a Mac device! If you have any further questions or concerns regarding opening coordinates in Minecraft, feel free to reach out to us and we’d be happy to help!

How To Open Coordinates In Minecraft On Mac 1

Opening XY Coordinates in Minecraft

In Minecraft, you can open XY coordinates to view your exact location in the game world. To do this in the Java version of Minecraft, press the F3 key on Windows or FN + F3 on Mac. Your coordinates will be shown at the top of the screen in the “XYZ” line.

In Bedrock Edition, you can open XY coordinates by pausing the game and selecting Settings in Game Settings, scrolling down to World Options, then toggling the Show Coordinates button. Finally, in Pocket Edition, you can open XY coordinates by pausing the game and selecting Settings in Game Settings, scrolling down to World Options, then toggling the Show Coordinates button.

Once you have opened your XY coordinates, you will be able to see your exact location in Minecraft’s world. Knowing your exact location can be useful for a variety of reasons – for example, when exploring a new area or when building a structure that requires the precise placement of blocks.

Getting Coordinates in Minecraft Without F3

If you don’t have access to F3, there are still several ways to get coordinates in Minecraft.

The first option is to install a minimap mod for your version of Minecraft. Most minimaps will display your coordinates in the corner of the screen, making them easy to read.

Another option is to use a third-party program that allows you to rebind a key or key combination to F3. That way, you can use your own custom key to bring up the debug screen and view your coordinates.

You can also use the Windows on-screen keyboard if you’re playing on PC, which will also allow you to view your coordinates without using F3.

Finally, if none of these options are available, you can always ask another player for their coordinates and then travel there yourself.

Understanding Why XYZ Coordinates Are Not Visible in Minecraft

XYZ coordinates are not visible in Minecraft by default. To enable them, press the F-Lock key (usually found on the top row of your keyboard) to unlock the F3 functionality. After that, press F3 to display XYZ coordinates. If you don’t have an F-Lock key, you can also enable XYZ coordinates by going into your Minecraft options menu under “Controls” and enabling “Show Coordinates”. Once enabled, you should be able to see XYZ coordinates when pressing F3 in the game.


In conclusion, playing Minecraft on a Mac is an enjoyable experience. By pressing the FN + F3 key combination, you can easily turn on and use coordinates to locate yourself in the game world. The pocket edition of the game also allows you to turn on coordinates by accessing the Game Settings menu and toggling the Show Coordinates button. With these tools, you can easily find your way around in this infinite world of adventure and explore what it has to offer.
