In every mode of Minecraft it will not let us break anything. When I click on a block to break it, the game goes to the inventory screen, and the block does not break. How do we fix it?

  • Try re-binding left mouse button to "Attack" from "Open inventory". Also, you can not break items in Minecraft, only pick them up. It is blocks what breaks. – Orc JMR Jul 11 '13 at 13:53

    What do you mean 'goes into the inventory and does not break'? Surely if it's gone into your inventory it's been broken? – fredley Jul 11 '13 at 13:57
  • @fredley I bet it's "game goes into the inventory and block does not break". – Orc JMR Jul 11 '13 at 14:08

    @MBraedly That question was abandoned by the OP and closed as it lacked necessary details to diagnose the problem. This is a nice, clear question. If anything, that other should be flagged as a duplicate of this one so that we keep the clearest Q&A as the main one. – SevenSidedDie Jul 11 '13 at 18:32
  1. Hit esc to go to the options menu

  2. Click Controls

  3. Set the key for 'Button 1' to left click, and set the key for 'Inventory' to e.

It's highly recommended to stick to the defaults.
