How to Solve the Rubik's Cube

Beginner's Guide

The last step is to solve the remaining 2-color pieces with Move 5.

The Setup

With white on top, hold the Rubik's Cube with a solved side on the left, if you can, and do Move 5. If you can't (no sides are solved), do Move 5 with any face forward and check again.

Optional shortcut: If the front piece needs to go to the right instead of the back, reverse the U turns.

Got it? Well done! Before you go, check out this page on the full site for a free cheat sheet and more.
