How to Get a Minecraft World Seed

A World Seed is a set of characters that Minecraft uses to generate a world.

When you know a world's seed, you can use this to recreate the world in your Minecraft server or singleplayer. So if you have a randomly generated world that you really like or want to reuse, it is helpful to know how to get the world seed.

World Seeds can be used on both Java and Bedrock Editions of Minecraft with differences between where structures are located.
