When i press E, to get out of a crafting table or a furnace, it sometimes opens my inventory. I've figured out that holding E opens and closes it really fast, how do i stop this from happening??

  • Does this happen with other keys? (Try binding inventory open to something else in your controls and test it) Does it happen in other games?

  • No, in both terraria and skyrim it doesn't do this.

Also, you can use the escape button to exit out of any gui, including any container inventory. I've always used this, so I don't know why Minecraft allowed us to close the container too! (If that makes sense)


By default, you press E to open your inventory. However, you can change this by pressing the Escape key: Press the Escape key

Than, click on Options. From there you will be able to open Controls: enter image description here

Change your default Inventory key from here.
