Items are objects that, excluding string, can't be placed (excluding in item frames), but they may be wieldable (such as weapons and tools), used in crafting, or an unprepared or ready-to-eat source of food.


Items are typically collected by either running over them where they hover on the ground or when a player crafts the items themselves. Items are stored in a player's inventory until they use the item, drop it upon death, or store it in a container such as a chest.

Discarding Items

To drop an item in the PC version of Minecraft, a player can press Q (default), while holding the item in their hand (CTRL+Q for an entire stack).

In Minecraft: Pocket Edition, this is accomplished by pressing and holding down on the item's icon on the action bar for a few seconds. This can also be accomplished by going into your inventory, tapping the item you wish to drop, and tapping the bottom left corner. This is much quicker and efficient. A dropped item will remain on the ground where it was dropped, before despawning after five minutes or being picked up again.
