    How do I get Minecraft back after switching Laptops?


    After transferring Laptops and using the same Microsoft account, I am unable to open Minecraft Launcher. this happens whenever I press play on the game, and when I tried resetting the store nothing changed. I already bought the game on my last computer.

    How do I get Minecraft back after switching Laptops?

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello WaffleFoxes, in your new laptop have you checked if you have the latest version of Windows installed, at 22H2.

    See which version of Windows 10 you have

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/see...

    Updates are often seen as optional.

    Also, make sure all Xbox Apps are up to date in the store, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed, it works with the Xbox App.

    How do I get my world back in Minecraft?

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently attempting to recover a World that you lost in Minecraft.

    On the Xbox One, if you are connected to Xbox Live [the internet] your save data automatically syncs to the

    cloud storage
    . You save data syncs every time that you close out the game and whenever you launch it.

    What I would recommend would be to
    remove your profile and then re-add it back to your console
    as this will force your save data to sync once more.

    Keep in mind that there is a possibility that your World would be lost and at that instance you would have to start once more.

    I hope this helps.
    Thanks for your response.

    But will deleting my profile from the console still keep my saved data from my other games?

    Hey there ChaseTodd,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forums for info on what happens when you delete/ remove your profile. I can totally see how the thought of having your progress lost could be distressing. When you are connected, the console saves all your progress to your
    gamertag on the Cloud. As long as you're able to redownload your profile with your sign-in information you should be able to pick up right where you left off.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for reading!

    How do I get my Minecraft data back?

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this Scott

    Unfortunately if the worlds doesn’t appear inside the Minecraft folder, this means they were permanently deleted :c
    Sorry
