    I am trying to buy minecraft java with a microsoft giftcard so I went to the store and found Minecraft. There was an install button and a buy to own button. Does buy to own, using a microsoft gift card give you minecraft java edition? (I didn't really know what topic to put this as so sorry if the topic was wrong.)

    does clicking the "Buy to own" button on Minecraft in the Microsoft store gives you a full Java Edition minecraft account?

    Hi Riya,

    Yes - once you purchase Minecraft: Java edition, you’ll receive a game account.

    Keep in mind though, Minecraft: Java edition can’t be purchased through the Microsoft store (Microsoft.com or Xbox console) and so you won’t be able to use a Microsoft/Xbox gift card to purchase the game (both physical and digital gift card codes). Microsoft gift cards will also only work, and apply to purchases on the Microsoft store (can’t be redeemed elsewhere). Only Minecraft for Windows 10, Minecraft for Xbox (bedrock editions), and Minecraft Dungeons can be purchased through the Microsoft store.

    Refer to:

    https://help.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/articles/360035131351-Where-Can-I-Buy-Minecraft-Java-Edition-

    Where it states -

    Where Can I Buy Minecraft: Java Edition? - Minecraft for PC/Mac/Linux:

    You can buy Minecraft Java Edition from Minecraft.net for $26.95 USD or local currency equivalent. You can learn more about pricing here. This is a one time purchase. You can buy an account for yourself, or buy a code to give away. Gift codes may not be available in all areas.

    This edition isn’t to be confused with the Minecraft for Windows 10 version from the Microsoft store.

    Note: Worlds/saves from the Java PC/Mac version of Minecraft are not compatible with the Minecraft on Windows 10. Free trial on Windows 10 includes 90 minutes of gameplay. 145.9 MB download.

    If the game gives you a “install now” option on the Microsoft store then you don’t necessarily need to purchase it, as it’s ready to install and free to play on your account. It usually means you either own the game through a subscription, such as Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold, or you have a free game trial (or demo). If you select the “install now” option, you should be able to remotely install the game to any compatible devices on your account.

    There are different Minecraft versions for different devices, which all have variations in terms of cross-play, DLC’s and add-ons, other features etc. Your game saves and progress aren’t connected across devices for all versions too. This is explained with the different versions, and which devices they’re compatible with here:

    If you have further questions,

    contact Mojang Support (submit a ticket with as much information as possible and they’ll reply by email).

    You can also reach out to them on Twitter @MojangSupport

    Hope this helps! :)

    Purchased content from iPad won’t save to Microsoft account so I can use on Xbox

    That is NOT what the prompt says, it says "Save purchases to a Microsoft Account", with a button that says "Save to Microsoft Account". No where is it mentioned that they are 2 different products, and you cannot save your purchases. Clicking "Save to Microsoft
    Account" does nothing, other than sign you into your Microsoft Account.

    The Full text:

    "Do you want to play with whatever you buy from any Minecraft Store enabled system? Sign in with a FREE Microsoft account and sync your purchased Skins, Textures, Maps, and Mash-ups to use and play in Minecraft!

    If you lose your system or uninstall Minecraft, your purchases will still be synced and accessible on any system when you use your Microsoft account."

    Please DO NOT respond if you are unsure or do not know the answer.

    What happens if I unenroll the Minecraft Beta Program on Xbox One?

    When you go to the store page for Minecraft, does it show that you own the game?
    It says "Buy to Own"

    Minecraft Windows 10: Move from Beta (90 min free) to Unlocking Full Game

    Hi, could you try searching for "Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition" using the Store App in your Windows 10 PC.

    Since you own the game, you should be able to download it from there without buying again.

    If it says installed, try unistalling and reinstalling the game again. If the install button pops up, do install it.

    If the download/install button does not pop up in the store or you are not getting the full game make sure you have logged into the right account.

    If these suggestions do not work, please feel free to come back!
