    Using Mojang Minecraft account for Microsoft Minecraft.


    Hey, so I bought minecraft from minecraft.net about like 6 years ago. My friend wants to cross-platform with me, and whenever I go to the microsoft store, "Minecraft" isn't in my Library, even though the account is still associated with it. Do I really
    have to purchase Minecraft (Microsoft edition) separately in order to be able to cross platform with my friend?

    :)

    When you redeemed your Java Minecraft on Mojang, you have gotten a 5x5 code to redeem Minecraft on the Windows 10 store.

    This redemption is a separate service of your Mojang account, and it's possible to use a Microsoft Account email that is different from your Mojang account email.

    Mojang (which gives you Java Minecraft) is separate from the Microsoft Windows Store App, which uses a Microsoft Account email when you redeemed that 5x5 code.

    After redemption of that code, the Windows 10 Minecraft is tied to the Microsoft Account email you used on your Windows 10 PC. From then on, you don't really need the Mojang account anymore, if you only want to play on Windows 10. You will then get the game
    from the Windows 10 store only, with the E-Mail account you used on the Windows 10 store during code redemption.

    So make sure you are signed in with the Microsoft Account email (which might not necessarily be the Mojang account email) when you use the Windows 10 Store app to re-download your Windows 10 Minecraft again.

    My Xbox account keeps crashing when I join MCPE.

    If this is minecraft pocket edition this is a mojang problem and not your microsoft account

    You may have to.

    The Minecraft.net version of Minecraft is the 'Java' version while the Microsoft/Windows 10 version that runs on console, mobile and well... Windows, is the Bedrock version. As far as I am aware cross-play between console, mobile, and Windows PC is only
    for that Bedrock version while the Java version is Mojang's 'original' and more frequently supported version (for lack of better terms.)

    Here are some places to read about that.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/bkxi31/java_vs_bedrock_what_are_the_differences/

    Its highly unlikely you'd be entitled to a Bedrock copy of the game but, considering you own the Java port through Minecarft.net... Mojang support may be able to help you or give you a discount or something if you inquire about it but that's seriously a
    stretch if I am being honest.

    At one point in time mojang was offering bedrock to any users that owned Java. I have both on my PC because of this. I am not sure if they still have this promo or not. You were able to redeem it from your mojang account back when they had this offer going.

    Cant sign in on my minecarft Nintendo switch

    Hi SpirantChair669,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums for this issue. Are you able to log into your Microsoft account at
    account.microsoft.com or
    xbox.com successfully? Are you having issues connecting your Microsoft account for Minecraft on the Switch, or your Mojang (Minecraft) account?

    If you're able to successfully log into your Microsoft account, but are having difficulty in getting your Minecraft/Mojang account to connect successfully, then I recommend that you reach out to Mojang Support so that they may further assist you with getting
    connected.
