Desktop version Toggles to the left of the player's main inventory.

Toggles are buttons in the player's inventory that are used to toggle certain effects and abilities. Some of these toggles are available at anytime, while others require certain items placed in the inventory, or in the Void Vault while the player has an open Void Bag.

Some toggles have unique icons when turned off. Toggles without unique "off"-state icons will be dimmed out when turned off.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, toggles appear as small icons to the left of the player's main inventory. Toggles from PDA are located below the minimap, or to the left of the armor slots, depending on UI scale and resolution.

On the Mobile version Mobile version, toggles will appear in the BuilderToolsIcon.png tools menu below the inventory. Toggles from PDA are located in the PDA.png accessories menu below the armor slots.

Hotbar Lock

Desktop version
Desktop-Only Content: This section's information applies only to the Desktop version of Terraria.
Effect of hotbar locked and unlocked.

The Hotbar Lock toggles whether clicking on the hotbar slots switches held items.

When hotbar is unlocked, clicking on a hotbar slot will select the item in the slot. This may interfere with other actions, for example, aiming a ranged weapon towards top-left corner of the screen.

When hotbar is locked, clicking on the hotbar acts just like clicking elsewhere, having no effect other than using the selected item on the cursor location.
