    I had Minecraft Windows 10 on my old laptop, now it wants me to buy it again


    I bought Minecraft Windows 10 Edition a couple of years ago, the laptop I bought it on died and I got a new one this year, I tried to download it on my new laptop but it says I only own the trial version and wants me to buy it for $27. I am using the same microsoft account and tried the resetting of the microsoft store, and the troubleshooter, uninstalling the trial and I tried clicking the ellipsis and scrolling down but the game does not show up. I only have two devices linked to this account, and it worked fine on my old laptop. None of the other suggestions I saw have helped, I called the support but cannot connect to a real person to explain the situation. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    :)

    Homegroup For Minecraft Servers Or What?

    It looks as if the existing minecraft server will use the new system without modification - It needs to be able to access the computers on the network in a two way link, which is the standard for Workgroup and Homegroup

    There is a complete step by step available, if you have any issues ...

    Tutorials/Setting up a server – Official Minecraft Wiki

    It's not something I have any direct experience with but a quick read suggests to me that you will not need to do Much if any reconfiguration of the existing server

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
