The best way to reduce lag in Minecraft

Anyone who plays video games is familiar with lag. Even a good main game can be ruined by not being able to control your actions and things not running smoothly.

Minecraft is no exception. With blocks breaking seconds later and your character teleporting around, there is a lot of room for bad things to happen when you are lagging. Read on to learn how to reduce lag in Minecraft.

To reduce lag when playing online, we recommend checking your internet connection as the first step.

When you or your host are playing with a slow connection, you will experience a lot of lag.

Try restarting your router and exiting and relaunching the game.

Our recommendation is to let someone else host if both sides have working internet.

You can ease the strain on your PC or console by adjusting your video settings.

We recommend changing the following settings for each edition of Minecraft.

If none of the above methods have worked, we recommend opening your Task Manager by pressing CTRL, Shift, and Esc simultaneously. Look at everything that your PC is currently trying to run and close anything that isn't necessary.   

Identify everything your PC is currently trying to run and close anything that isn't necessary.

If you right-click each item and select End Task, your PC will close it out and focus more on Minecraft.

Thank You!
