    I have the same issue, clearly states on my games on Minecraft site I own it.

    I owned the Minecraft for windows edition. But unfortunately its been removed from the store and moved to a launcher, and that launcher is telling me to pay again.

    :)

    when i log onto to minecraft it now tells me I can only play demo mode

    Hi Tom,

    I use a HP Omen Laptop. I last played when the first half of the caves and cliffs update came out. I have tried but I don’t remember my password and when I request a password change it doesn’t send me a recovery email even though I know this is the right email.

    Thanks,

    Felix

    Hello Felix Hughes,

    Thank you for your prompt response.

    We have identified the issue why it is showing that you can only play the demo mode in Minecraft because of password issue. If resetting the password will not work, we have to recover the right account where the Minecraft game was associated with. If you do not have an alternate email address or phone number added to your security information, then resetting the password will not work. What we can do is to recover the account.

    To set your expectation, Microsoft account are managed by a completely automated server, and we do not have manual access to it. To recover the account, we have to go through with the meticulous account recovery process.

    To start the account recovery, please refer to this link: Help with the Microsoft account recovery form - Microsoft Support

    For your complete guide on how to fill up the form, you may check the post shared by A. User through this link; Recover your Microsoft account using the Online Validation - Microsoft Community

    I can only play Minecraft demo mode

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    These steps can help you, give it a try.
    Check for updates on Windows Update, update everything including optional/additional updates.
    1. Logout from Xbox app and Microsoft Store app
    2. Look for the Xbox app and Microsoft Store app in the Windows menu, right-click, click app settings and then click terminate, restore and reset. Do this with the launcher and also remove your account from the launcher.
    3. Clear the store cache type ''wsreset'' in the Windows bar, run as admin, and wait for the screen to close and open the store automatically.
    4. Open the Microsoft Store app, click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner>downloads updates>get updates and update everything.
    5. Restart your PC, log in to both apps and see if that solves the problem.
