If you’re wondering how to download Minecraft for PC, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll have you up and running faster than you can say “Creeper? Aw man!”
There are two PC versions of Minecraft available to download: Minecraft Java Edition or Minecraft for Windows 10 (commonly known as Bedrock). There are some notable differences between the two versions. Bedrock doesn't have an updated combat system, but it does allow for crossplay with Xbox One and mobile, and has some content that Java doesn't. Meanwhile Java only allows players to play with other Java players, but has more public servers and a better modding scene. If you're not quite sure which to choose then we advise going for Java, as it included a free copy of Bedrock with it.
