How to Teleport Using Commands in Creative Mode

In creative mode you can use cheat commands, so make sure these are turned on in the game’s settings before jumping into your world. This applies to the Bedrock, Java, and Pocket Edition. 

  1. Press T to open the console in the PC and pocket editions, or / in the Java edition to open the console.
  2. Type /tp [player] <x y z>
  3. Press enter

 x, y, and z refer to the coordinates on the map where the player’s character will teleport to. X is the distance east (+) or west (-) of their original position, z is the distance south (+) or north (-), and y is the height from 0 to 255. (64 is sea level).

You can also use ~ or ^ with a number to move to coordinates relative to the player’s current position.

So ~8 ~ ~- would move the player eight blocks east on the x-axis, remain at the same height on the y-axis and, eight blocks north along the z-axis.  ^ movement is based on the direction the player is facing, and then moves them along the left, upward, and forward axis, so ^8 ^ ^-8 would be eight blocks left, no blocks up, and eight blocks backward.

Instead of typing in a specific player name, for example, Steve, you can instead use the following shortcuts to select particular players or objects without needing to know their name.:

@p = the nearest player to you

@r = a random player

@a = all players in the world

@e = all entities in the world

@s = you
