Close minecraft


Once I’m in minecraft. The mouse will not allow me to close program using the x in the right hand corner. Please advise


Do you meanwhile in piper? Or the regular Minecraft?


I’m not sure. Could you tell me for each one of it is different, please. I can only look around with the mouse. It won’t allow me to click on the x and close the window.
Thank you


Also, How do you move in minecraft? My buttons don’t seem to be working.
Thank you!


The Piper version of Minecraft starts when you boot the Pi. If you go to the main Menu, at the top right you should see a button (red circle with a line thru it). If you push it you will get the option to exit to the desktop, reboot or shutdown the Pi.

If you perviously exited Piper and from the Raspberry menu, went to games and ran ‘Minecraft Pi’, you need a USB keyboard attached to the Pi to move. To exit, hit teh ESC key and press teh close box on the window.


I’m running into the same problem, I can’t escape the game or move just using a mouse. Even with a keyboard peripheral, there’s no way to move in any direction.


You can use the middle mouse button to access the in game heads up display, which has a button in the right-hand side for exiting the game.

Post a picture of your Raspberry Pi pin setup for help troubleshooting not being able to move.


We had the same problem 3 days ago, and it was so stuck that even the scroll mouse button wouldn’t have any effect on the exit procedure (I could see the menu, but it seemed like frozen) and no “esc” or other known shortcut were working. I went to Minecraft and raspberry forums and found the " alt + tab " solution (on a keyboard which didn’t have any F4 key) helpful to exit the game and go back to the main raspbian desktop: it was better than unplugging the Pi, for sure !

Hope it helps !


Hi! We are new at Piper and my English level is not the best, so please try to be nice and patience =)
My son cant get out of the planet that he is playing, and go back to de universe… when he is at Creativy Mode. He cant go back to the desktop with out reset de Piper. He told me that he didnt know what he touched that only once he could do it. Can someone (that understand me) help me! Thanks

Hola! Somos nuevos en Piper y mi nivel de inglés no es el mejor, les agradezco sean buenos y me tengan paciencia.
Mi hijo me comenta que no puede cuando está jugando en algún planeta, no puede volver hacia atrás al universo sin tener que resetear, cuando está en el modeo creativo. No encontramos la vuelta para volver al escritorio. Me dijo que una vez, no sabe cómo, tocó algo que le aparecía el salir del planeta pero no sabe cómo lo hizo. ¿Alguno que me entienda podrá ayudarnos? Mil gracias!


Hola, para salir de un nivel, presione la rueda de desplazamiento del mouse (es un botón). Puede que tengas que hacerlo un par de veces. Aparecerá una barra de menú en la parte superior, a la derecha verá una puerta. Haz clic en la puerta para volver al menú del planeta.

Además, hay una actualización de corrección de errores que debe aplicar. Le llevará a la versión 2.4.4 - Desde el menú principal, presione el botón ACTUALIZAR

Hello, to exit a level, press the mouse scroll wheel (it is a button). You may have to do it a couple of times. A menu bar will appear at the top, on the right you will see a door. Click on the door to return to the planet menu.

In addition, there is an error correction update that you must apply. It will take you to version 2.4.4 - From the main menu, press the UPDATE button
