Quick Tip!

To display your current coordinates in the Java Edition, press Fn+F3 (or Alt+Fn+F3). In Bedrock Edition, enable Show Coordinates in the world settings.

Method 1: Using  the /tp (Teleport) Command

The easiest teleporting method in Minecraft is using the /tp command. This command allows you to teleport yourself or other players to a specific location in the game. 

  • To use the /tp command, you must first open the chat window by pressing the T key. How you do this depends on which platform you’re playing on
Platform Keys
PC Press the T key.
Mobile Tap the Chat icon at the top of the screen.
Xbox Press Right on the D-Pad.
PlayStation Press Right on the D-Pad.
Nintendo Switch Press Right on the D-Pad.
  • Next, type in the command “/tp [player] [x] [y] [z]” and press enter.

For example, if you want to teleport yourself to the coordinates (50, 75, 100), you would type in “/tp 50 75 100” and press enter.

Teleport other Players in Minecraft

You can also teleport other players, which is super cool! Just type their username before the coordinates. So, if you want to teleport your buddy Peter,  type: /tp Peter 200 75 100.

And if you just want to teleport yourself to Jatin (or any of your friends), just type:/tp Peter. It’s an awesome way to travel in Minecraft!

Method 2: Using a Nether Portal

Another method to teleport in Minecraft is a Nether Portal. A Nether Portal is an obsidian structure through which the player can travel between the Nether and the Overworld.


Bedrock edition does not support the command /execute in DimensionName run tp PlayerName ~ ~ ~. to teleport into the nether directly. Using the Nether Portal is necessary.

  1. Gather obsidian blocks by using a water bucket on lava.
  2. Obtain enough obsidian blocks to create a rectangular shape for the portal.
  3. Build the nether portal using the obsidian blocks, making it at least four blocks wide and five blocks tall. 
  4. Use flint and steel or a fire charge to ignite the portal.
  5. Once the portal is lit, step through it to be transported to the Nether.
  6. To return to the Overworld, create another nether portal in the Nether and step through it.

That’s it! Enjoy your adventures in both the Overworld and the Nether using nether portals.
