Show coordinates. Minecraft: Java edition

The Minecraft debug screen can be a treasure trove of information. Most commonly, it’s used to check FPS and coordinates, but what if the coordinates are missing? This guide will show you how to enable them again, through the settings or via the gamerule.

Why can’t I see my coordinates?

Parts of the debug screen can be hidden with the reduced debug info setting or gamerule. Most often it’s caused by the chat setting, but occasionally map makers can set it as a gamerule.

Settings method

Pause Minecraft and click Options

Minecraft: Java edition pause menu

Click Chat Settings

Scroll down to Reduced Debug Info and change it to OFF

Back out of the menu and check the coordinates. If they’re not showing: move on to the game rule method.
