First introduced

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

Provides help/list of commands.

Syntax
  • Java Edition
help [page|command name]
Alternative command:
? [page|command name]
  • Bedrock Edition
help [command: CommandName]
help <page: int>
Alternative command:
? [command: CommandName]
? <page: int>
Arguments
page|command name (BE: page: int or command: CommandName) (optional)
Specifies the page number of the command list or the command to provide help for. If not specified, defaults to 1 (the first page of the command list).
Result
Fails if page is not a valid page number, or if command name is not a valid command name. Technically fails even if a valid command name is specified, although it displays the usage of the command.
On success, displays a page of the command list. Multiplayer commands will not be displayed while in singleplayer, even when open to LAN players.
If a valid command name was specified, displays the usage for that command. For some complicated commands may show only the basic usage — additional information can sometimes be gained by attempting to type the command and using the auto-complete control (defaults to Tab ↹ key) to explore available options for each argument.
Examples
To display the first page of the command list: ? or help
To display the third page of the command list: ? 3
To display the usage for the help command: help help
