After naming your world, scroll down in the same pane to find a customizable list titled ‘World Options’. In there, you will find the item ‘Show coordinates’; you can press it or turn it on to make the coordinates visible.

Method 3
Start the game and enter the gaming interface. Once you are in there playing, type the following command through your keyboard: –

/gamerule showcoordinates true

After typing this command, press enter. You will now be able to see the position you are in, in a coordinate form on the top left corner of your screen.
