Items are objects which can't be placed in the world, 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, 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 item's icon on the action bar or few seconds. A dropped item will remain on the ground where it was dropped for a while, before eventually despawning, or being picked up again.
