I know there used to be an option to show FPS at all times in an earlier version and I know F3 still shows it now but only while you hold F3.

I tried this F3 + alt + F3 technique but (at least on my macbook pro) I couldn't get that to work. Any other suggestions?

    Heh, you had first-person-shooter as a tag - I presume this was due to a tag synonym of fps? – Kevin Yap Dec 23 '10 at 4:58

Hold F3, press F10, release F3, press F10 again. It will show all the info (FPS, position, chunk updates, etc.) on the screen without having to hold a button. To get rid of it, press F3 again.

  • Perfect! Is that mac specific or does it work in any OS? – Rob Van Dam Jan 15 '11 at 18:48
  • It works in Windows, wouldn't know about anything else, but it probably does. – Javier Jan 19 '11 at 23:00
  • Just a note: you won't have to press F10 with F3 you just have to press F3 – user167163 Sep 24 '16 at 12:28
