    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Are you using Minecraft app downloaded from Store or Minecraft program?
    • Do you receive any error?
    I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall Minecraft and check if that fixes the issue.

    Also try to download and install the display and chipset drivers from the manufacturer website.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
