    Minecraft - playing a game with my kid 154d0c81-f1a0-4b7f-9209-c46d5ef16c94?upload=true.png


    I have two copies of this game. I have two Windows 10 PCs. How do I play co-op with my son?


    Edit: when I try to play, it says I'm logged in at another location. Is there any way of associating one of these licenses with my wife's account or something?

    :)

    Taskbar is visible while playing Minecraft Game

    Hi MasterMister,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The screen shot which is uploaded is in Windowed mode, we have to change it to immersive mode to enable it in full screen.

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Launch the Minecraft game.
    2. Select Video settings. This menu will have all the settings for graphics and videos.
    3. Select Full screen and make sure it is
      turned on.

    You can also check with the following two shortcut keys to enable full screen mode.

    • F11
    • Alt+Enter

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

  4. Minecraft - playing a game with my kid

    Minecraft

    Hi Reinis,

    There are several editions of Minecraft. Each edition works best on the platform it was intended to.
    Minecraft: Java and Minecraft: Windows 10 editions were created for Windows 10 devices. There's a different version available for an Xbox One platform. To answer your question, since the version you have is for Windows 10,
    you'll need to purchase the game's Xbox One version. You may purchase Minecraft: Xbox One version on this

    link
    .

    Our Xbox developers are collating suggestions for the improvement of your Xbox gaming experience. Recently, we've created the
    Xbox Play Anywhere feature. This allows Windows 10 games to be played on Xbox One and vice versa. Based on the list, Minecraft is not yet an
    XPA game. You may refer to this
    link
    for additional details regarding the XPA games. Since Minecraft is not yet an
    XPA game, we recommend submitting a post to the
    Xbox UserVoice
    page and request this game to be included as an Xbox Play Anywhere.

    We hope we're able to answer your query.

    If there's anything else you want to clarify, don't hesitate to get back to us. We'd be glad to further assist you.
