Whenever I take a screenshot in Minecraft, the screenshot contains the hotbar in it. I really want to get rid of it for screenshots. I can't go to spectator mode because cheats is disabled.

Is there any way to obtain a screenshot without the user interface in it?

For reference, I am using Minecraft Java Edition v1.13.2 on a PC.

  • the shortcut is also dependant on the type of computer if I am not mistaken...

As per my comment, and per this link, use the F1 key to turn off your HUD, then take your screenshot with F2, with the HUD excluded. Finally, use F1 to turn it back on

  • @TheMattbat999 It's the key for screenshot.
