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.
Pause Minecraft and click Options
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.
Open Minecraft chat, type /gamerule reducedDebugInfo false and hit enter.
Your coordinates should now be shown.
