First introduced

Java Edition 1.3.1 (12w17a)
PE Alpha 0.16.0 (PE Alpha 0.16.0 build 1)

Provides help/lists of commands.


  • Java Edition
help [<command>]
  • Bedrock Edition
help [command: CommandName]
help <page: int>


<command> (BE: command: CommandName)

Specifies the command to provide help for. In Java Edition, entering more specific parameters of that command is allowed.

page: int[Bedrock Edition only]

Specifies the page number of the command list. Must be an integer between -2147483648 and 2,147,483,647 (inclusive, without the commas), but numbers less than 1 or greater than the total number of pages are treated as 1 or the last page accordingly.


Fails if page: int is not a valid page number, or if <command> is not a valid command name.

On success, displays a page of the command list. Multiplayer commands are not displayed while in singleplayer, even when open to LAN players.

If a valid command name was specified, displays the usage for that command. In Java Edition, for some complicated commands may show only the basic usage; additional information can be supplied by entering more specific parameters of that command.


  • To display (the first page of‌[Bedrock Edition only]) the command list: /help.
  • To display the usage for the /give command: /help give.
  • To display the usage for the add section of the /scoreboard command: /help scoreboard add.
