  1. Purchased incorrect Minecraft version.


    On 10/14/2020 I accidentally bought Minecraft Java Addition with a $26.95 PC/MAC Minecraft gift card. I was expecting to buy Minecraft Windows 10. Is there any way to uninstall Minecraft Java Addition and use the original money on the gift card to install Minecraft Windows 10 on my Laptop.

    Reading the Mojang terms and conditions it reads:

    · Different editions of Minecraft are not interchangeable. If you have accidentally bought the wrong Minecraft edition, contact the appropriate support team for your console. [Microsoft Store - Microsoft Support]


    I also contacted Mojang directly and the response is that since it was through a prepaid card they could not refund. I am not looking for a refund but rather and exchange to get the correct version for Windows 10

    Hopefully, this can be resolved easily, I look forward to your response.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Purchased Multiple Copies Of Minecraft Versions, But Need Minecraft - Java Edition.

    Hi Debalena,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    If you have purchased several copies of Minecraft from Mojang, then I suggest you to refer the
    Mojang refunds policy and check their refund policy.



    If you want to swap your editions of Minecraft that you have purchased, please
    Contact Mojang Support and they will help you with this.



    If you have purchased Minecraft from Microsoft Store, then I suggest you to refer
    Returning items you bought from Microsoft Store for exchange or refund
    and check if you can get a refund.



    As you need the Java Edition of Minecraft, you can follow the steps mentioned in
    How do I install Minecraft: Java Edition? and install
    the Java Edition of Minecraft on your computer.



    Before purchasing the Java Edition of Minecraft, I suggest you to refer the system requirements for installing the Java Edition of Minecraft from
    Minecraft: Java Edition system requirements.



    For reference, you may also refer the Different Minecraft Editions
    to know more about the different versions of Minecraft.

  4. Purchased incorrect Minecraft version.

    Minecraft Got Deleted After Clean Installating Windows 10 And Again Minecraft Purchased.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I think you did a Clean Installation of Windows 10 and Clean Installation will delete all your applications; games; and your user data such as music files, video files, pictures, documents, etc.



    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    1. From where did you purchase the Minecraft game?
    2. Have you already installed Minecraft on your Windows 10 computer?


    If you have purchased several copies of Minecraft from Mojang, then I suggest you to refer the
    Mojang refunds policy and check their refund policy.



    If you have purchased Minecraft from Microsoft Store, then I suggest you to refer
    Returning items you bought from Microsoft Store for exchange or refund
    and check if you can get a refund.



    If you have purchased Minecraft from Oculus, then I suggest you to
    Contact the Oculus Support Team
    and they will help you with this.



    Please feel free to contact us back, in case you have any other questions/issues with Windows in future.
