To set the time to day in Minecraft, players have two options – using a command or sleeping in a bed. To use a command, players need to have administrative privileges. They can open the chat window and type “/time set day” to instantly change the time to day. Alternatively, players can sleep in a bed to skip through the night and wake up when it’s daytime. This option is useful for players without administrative privileges or those who need a more immersive experience in the game. Both methods allow players to enjoy daylight and avoid hostile mobs that appear during the night..

How to Set Time to Day in Minecraft
This Minecraft tutorial explains how to set the time to day with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.
When the game turns to night in Minecraft, you can change the time back to day with a cheat (game command). Let’s explore how to set the time to daytime using the /time command.
The /time command to change the time to day is available in the following versions of Minecraft:
|Java Edition (PC/Mac)
|Pocket Edition (PE)
|Windows 10 Edition
* The version that it was added or removed, if applicable.
NOTE: Pocket Edition (PE), Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows 10 Edition are now called Bedrock Edition. We will continue to show them individually for version history.
In Minecraft, gameplay is divided into day and night, just like in real life! During the day, you can break blocks and place blocks in new locations to build elaborate structures. And at night, monsters/mobs appear that you can battle.
When the game turns to night, you can choose to sleep in your bed, battle mobs, or you can use a cheat to change the time from night to day.
To run game commands in Minecraft, you have to turn cheats on in your world.
Command to Set Time to Day
How to Enter the Command
1. Open the Chat Window
The easiest way to run a command in Minecraft is within the chat window. The game control to open the chat window depends on the version of Minecraft:
- For Java Edition (PC/Mac), press the T key to open the chat window.
- For Pocket Edition (PE), tap on the chat button at the top of the screen.
- For Xbox One, press the D-Pad (right) on the controller.
- For PS4, press the D-Pad (right) on the controller.
- For Nintendo Switch, press the right arrow button on the controller.
- For Windows 10 Edition, press the T key to open the chat window.
- For Education Edition, press the T key to open the chat window.
2. Type the Command
In this example, we will set the time to day with the following command:
/time set day
Type the command in the chat window. As you are typing, you will see the command appear in the lower left corner of the game window. Press the Enter key to run the command.
Once the cheat has been entered, the game will return to daytime:
You will see the message “Set the time to 1000” appear in the lower left corner of the game window. This will reset the time on the Minecraft game to 1000 which turns the game to day.
Congratulations, you just set the game to day in Minecraft!
