  1. Got Minecraft for Windows 10 Free from Mojang - Still asks me to purchase it in game


    As the title says, I got Minecraft for Windows 10 from Mojang. I owned Minecraft: Java Edition for a long time, so they gave it to me for free. However, when I launch the game, it asks me to sign in and purchase the game. If I already own the game,
    why do I need to purchase it again? Can someone please help me out here?

    :)

    I need some help regarding claiming my windows 10 edition of Minecraft.

    Hi MK,

    Thanks for asking this question on the Xbox forums. In regard to any codes for a free version of Minecraft for Windows 10 with the purchase of Minecraft Java version, that would need to come directly from Mojang. According to their website, "Players
    who have purchased Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 can get Minecraft for Windows 10 for free by visiting their Mojang account.
    "

    Should you like to check your ability to claim this code, I recommend following the instructions provided in the Mojang Support article entitled
    Minecraft for Windows 10.
    If it is determined that you're not eligible, then you would need to purchase that particular version in order to use it.

    Give this a try and let us know the results.

    I hope that this helps you out!

    Cant change my Minecraft skin or redeem windows 10

    Hi Airwreck14,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums with this question. In regard to the Minecraft: Java edition, if you purchased Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018, can get this edition for free by requesting it from Mojang. If you did
    not, then you would be required to purchase the Minecraft: Windows 10 edition in order to obtain that version of Minecraft & change the skin. Minecraft: Java and the Windows 10 version are 2 separately coded versions of the game.

    This article from Mojang Support can help further explain why this is happening:

    I hope that this helps out. Let us know if you have any further questions.
