  1. How do I transfer my free copy of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition to my new computer?


    As the title says I need to transfer my copy of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition to my new computer but the old hard drive it was on was wiped.


    I still have access and am logged in with the account I used, I have the original codes and proof of purchase, I just need to find out how to activate it on my new PC. Many thanks.

    :)

    minecraft windows 10 edition. windows store.

    Hi,

    If you already played Minecraft from its previous PC or Mac version (running Java), you will be eligible to download Minecraft: Windows 10 edition for free. Normally, you'll be able to download the full version right after you redeem the Minecraft: Windows
    10 Beta code to your Windows 10 computer. In your case, there's a possibility it doesn't detect the beta code that you redeemed. We recommend that you reset the Windows Store to clear the store cache on your computer by performing the following steps:

    • Press  Windows key + X on your keyboard. 
    • Click on Command prompt (Admin).
    • Type wsreset.exe, and then hit Enter.
    • Restart your computer and reinstall the game.

    To know more about Minecraft: Windows 10 edition, you may refer to this link.

    Let us know if the solution works for you.

  4. How do I transfer my free copy of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition to my new computer?

    Can't find a way to Minecraft Windows 10 Edition for new account.

    Hi,

    Digital licenses are associated with the account used to redeem the game codes. In order to download the full version of Minecraft on Windows 10, you'll need to use the account that owns the game license. Transferring licenses from one account to another
    is unavailable as this will go against the Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology that protects account licenses.

    We suggest that you download the game using the account that owns the license and set up family feature. This will allow your new account to access the items you've downloaded. Refer to

    Set up your family
    for the steps.

    You may also visit this
