Key bindings are the keyboard buttons used for the player to interact with the game screen.
Default Key Bindings
It is possible to change the key bindings by either going to 'Home Screen', then 'Settings/Skins', then 'Key Bindings', or pausing, then going to 'Options', then 'Key Bindings'.
These are the key bindings by default.

|R||Open task list|
|Shift||Toggle placing blocks, item interaction, and other uses|
|Esc||Open pause menu and exit inventory, task list, and commands|
|1 through 9||Select hot bar item|

These controls do not appear in the options, and cannot be changed:
|Double tapping the movement keys||Sprint|
|Double tapping the jump key||Fly (only available on Creative)|
|Shift + drop item key||Drop the entire selected stack|
