My little brother was fooling around with the keys and I cant get it to break blocks. I can place blocks and perform other tasks. I tried everything in settings but it just wont break blocks.

If anyone can explain how to fix this that would be great because right now I am totally MineCraftless and I need to play that game!!!!

Thank You

  • What do you mean by keys? Bindings, which would make swiftsly's answer correct, or was he typing commands into chat?

Make sure your Attack/Destroy button in the "Options," "Controls" settings menu is set to the correct button, usually the left mouse button (Button 1). If not, click the button across from Attack/Destroy and then click the assignment button with your left mouse button.

Now, go into a world try holding down the left mouse button and you should be able to break blocks.
