Saving Hotbars In Minecraft

If you have particular go-to selections for your main Hotbar you may want an easier way to access each set that you have created. This is where saving a Hotbar makes things more accessible. In order to save a Hotbar, you can press and hold the ‘c’ key on the keyboard. While you are in the process of that, press any number between 1 and 9. When you have done that, you have successfully saved a Hotbar.

It has been known in the past that the Optifine mod has a different keybinding linked to the ‘c’ key so be sure to make sure that the mod is disabled or the keybindings are altered if you’re having issues with saving a Hotbar with the mod installed. When you have saved the Hotbar, you can load any Hotbars that you have saved by pressing and holding the ‘x’ key then selecting a number between 1 and 9 with your saved Hotbar. After that, you will have access to your Hotbar once again.

Saving Hotbars is a feature that you should definitely be utilizing if you’re planning to switch between key item sets a lot of the time within the experience.
