A username can define who you are as a gamer, and your Minecraft Java username is often the first time you are ever faced with the decision of choosing a username. In case you do not like the choice you made several years ago, don’t worry. There’s a quick and easy way to change your username on Minecraft Java. Make sure to follow closely for the best results. Right, let’s get into it.
Firstly, open up the Minecraft Java launcher from your desktop. On the top left of your screen, click on the down arrow button next to your username and profile picture. From the menu that appears, click on “Manage Account”. This is will open up your browser and ask you the security questions you had set, in order to log you in. You can reset them via your email in case you do not remember the answers. Once you are in your account, scroll down and find the Profile Information page. Here, the only item available is Profile Name. Click on the “Change” button next to this, and enter in your username in the space provided. You’ll have to wait for a second or two as the servers verify if your username is available and not currently used, as well as free of profanity or hate speech. Now, click on Done. Once this is complete, there is a good chance you receive an error on the website and you are prompted to reload. This is not abnormal, so do not worry and simply click on reload. When the page refreshes, scroll down to the Profile Information section again and your Profile Name should now be displaying the updated username you entered. That’s it! You’re done. We hope this quick guide helped you out. Have fun gaming with your brand new username! Cheers.
