With the console versions of there's a button you can press to clear your hotbar in creative mode (on it's the X button). However, on PC, I'm not seeing any indicator on the screen that it's possible:

I'm aware that I can clear my inventory with the clear command if I have cheats enabled. However, this clears the entire inventory, to include the hotbar. That's not the desired effect, and I'm not seeing anything in the control list in settings that tells me how to do it either.

Are there any keystrokes or hotkeys to clear just the hotbar?


How to clear Hotbar on PC Minecraft? In the survival inventory tab of the creative inventory, ⇧ + Shift + clicking the X clears the whole inventory. In any other tab, ⇧ + Shift + clicking an item puts a stack onto the hotbar. If this doesn't work, I'm sorry, because I only play on bedrock ps4 edition, but I know many Minecraft streamers who use this and it seems to work! Good luck.

  • Welcome to the Arqade! Unfortunately, the goal isn't to clear the entire inventory, but thank you for your hotkey contribution! To clarify for future readers, can you update your post to specify that you hold + Shift? As it stands currently, it doesn't appear to be very clear. Aug 4 '21 at 20:07
  • Thanks. I forgot to read the bottom lol. I will do that! Aug 4 '21 at 20:23
