  1. Sharing Minecraft Java Edition with Microsoft family members


    I have purchased Minecraft Java Edition with my Microsoft account and only now find out that the members in my family on my Microsoft account, is not able to play as well as I need to purchase a separate Minecraft account for them. I find this very odd and have looked all over the internet for solutions which I have not found. Is it possible to change the Minecraft I have already purchased so at least one of my family members can play? It would get ridiculously expensive if I had to buy a Minecraft game for each member in the family. What is the point of a family account then?

    :)

    Setting Microsoft Family app limit on Minecraft Java edition

    Time spent using Minecraft Java edition doesn't show up in the list of apps used in Microsoft Family. This means you can't set an app limit on it. Minecraft launcher shows up, but it only says it has been used for 1 minute, whereas i know the game has
    been played for hours. How can parental controls be applied here? It works for Minecraft Windows 10 edition but not Java.

  3. 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.
