This is the way to get a command block in Minecraft, using either Java or Bedrock edition. A command block is a block that can execute commands. Because it cannot be obtained or altered in Survival mode without cheats, it is primarily utilized on multiplayer servers, in Creative universes, and custom maps.
Command blocks are one of those complex features. Powered by redstone, command blocks let you automate the world, control players, set server rules, and more.
How To Get a Command Block in Minecraft
Command blocks can be obtained by running a command.

Using the Command block
Whenever you’ve placed your command block, you can set the block up with codes so it performs automatic tasks. These tasks include killing foes as soon as they spawn, giving players things, and more.
- Select the command block that you placed.
- In the menu that opens, you’ll have a couple of options. Utilize the primary option to pick how frequently the command block ought to run: Impulse will run the command once and then stop, Repeat/Current will run the command indefinitely, and Chain will require any associated command block to run before it does.
For Minecraft Java Edition
- Go to the “server.properties” document in your server’s config records.
- Change the line that says “enable-command-block=false” to “enable-command-block=true”
- Give yourself a Command Block by opening the chat box and entering “/give [your username] minecraft:command_block”
- Turn on Creative Mode by typing “/gamemode c” in your chat box.
- Place the Command Block where you want it.
How Command Blocks Work
Command blocks are, as the name recommends, blocks that automate commands. For example, players can type the “/give” command to automatically get a thing, as found in the above image.
Alternatively, they can left-tap on a command block and compose the same command in there. Players can then interface one of Minecraft’s redstone changes to the block. Each time a player utilizes the switch, the block performs the command, and the player gets a thing.
Programming and Activating a Command Block
You can place the command block like you can place any normal block. By right-clicking on the block (or using a nondefault Use Item button), you open the Set Console Command for Block interface. You can enter a command in the Console Command box. You can access this interface just in Creative mode — on the off chance that you’re playing on a server, you should have operator status as well.
