Have you ever felt tired of Minecraft’s vanilla function when you move items around and use them in crafting? With this simple Inventory Sorting mod, you can save a lot of time moving things around and organizing your items efficiently. Let’s see how!

Inventory Sorting Mod

The Inventory Sorting mod is a new mod that adds one more button on the top right corner of every supported inventory (player inventory, chests, shulker boxes,…) in Minecraft. When clicked, the slots in the inventory below the button will be sorted by alphabet order. Super convenient!

The only downfall for this mod is you can only install it through Fabric since it requires Fabric API while most other Minecraft mods require Minecraft Forge. But still, everyone needs this sorting feature. If you’re looking for a simple, quick, and lightweight inventory sorter mod, this is definitely the mod for you!

How Can You Sort Your Inventory?

As mentioned above, you can sort your inventory quickly with a click of a button. But there are more ways to do so!

  • Pressing a pre-defined hotkey in the Setting option
  • Middle click the mouse button on an empty inventory slot
  • Double click on an empty inventory slot
  • Using commands: /sort or /sortme

You can blacklist a particular inventory if you don’t want to accidentally sort it. In most cases, you don’t want to blacklist it, but for example, if it’s your treasure chest, you will want to manually sort your valuables.
