I don't know how to put a block down from inventory. I have inventory but in the main playing screen, I don't know how to take an inventory item and put it down to start building a house. I have already tried to do this, but all that happens is it smashes into the ground.

How do I use a block to start a house?

    I'm voting to reopen this question, because I think it's fairly clear the user is asking how to place blocks in Minecraft. I don't think it's a good question, but that doesn't mean it should be closed.

  • @kcam There seems to be a lot of trolls and open-questions-and-never-login-again people on here quite alot. Not saying @ kcam is one, but it's very possible.

Do right click to place a block.

If the right button of your mouse smashes, go to Options > Controls

and the Use Item/Place Block entry should be Button 2


You can right click to place, and use the scroll wheel to select items.
