I watched this video by Etho: Etho's Mini Farm

And at 45s he picks a whole stack of items out of a chest, just by clicking on a single item. How does he do that?

Same as what I've answered in another question. – Alvin Wong Apr 3 '13 at 14:57

same source as @rayfloyd's answer

Hovering over an item in an inventory and clicking with the mouse wheel when in creative gives the maximum stack of that item.

Or whatever the "Pick Block" key has been set to. – SevenSidedDie Apr 2 '13 at 20:16

Left-Clicking whilst holding down left shift in survival mode also does this. I use this as I have a laptop. Laptop=touchpad=no mouse wheel.

That just moves a full or partial stack to or from a container. It doesn't create a full stack from one item. – SevenSidedDie Apr 4 '13 at 15:21
Imagine if it did and all of us didn't know there was a secret right under our keyboard. – Timtech Aug 17 '13 at 19:43

You can also hover over the item and press shift click. This is also used for moving things from your first line to inventory and to easily put armor on

i just simply do shift+left-click and then go into creative inventory and do the same thing with the same item and it will fill the stack

Hover over an item, Shift-Click, then left click

This answer doesn't seem to be any different from some of the existing answers. – deutschZuid Jan 8 '14 at 20:06
