Minecraft 1.12 turn off tutorial/instructions

In Minecraft 1.12 and onwards, on the top right hand corner of the screen, a tutorial pops up telling the player what to do. It doesn’t go away until the player does what it says.

This is undesirable for server admins like me as well as some of my fellow players, for they are simply annoying and kind of useless, especially when the tutorial tells you to break a tree but the entire map in the server cannot be edited.

Is there any way to disable them?


There is a way to turn it off for MC 1.12+, but it can only be turned off client side (meaning players need to disable it themselves).

Warning: Make sure you have your minecraft closed for this to work.

  1. Find your .minecraft folder and open it. Type %appdata% in the search bar on the left bottom corner if you don’t know where your .minecraft folder is located.
  2. Next, find the file called “options” or “options.txt” and open it.
  3. Search for “tutorialStep:” in the options file. Quick way to find it is by pushing these keys on your keyboard CTRL + F and typing tutorial in the search box.
  4. Replace “tutorialStep:(anything that was written here, delete it)” with “tutorialStep:none“.
  5. Save the file, launch your Minecraft game, and enter a multiplayer server or single player world to check if you did it correctly.

That’s it. 😊
