Looking to change your Minecraft version? Whether you’re trying to play an older version of the game for nostalgia purposes, or you’re trying to access a newer version before it’s officially released, there are a few ways to do it. In this guide, we’ll show you how to change your Minecraft version on Windows, Mac, and Android.

Finding the Right Version of Minecraft

There are a lot of different versions of Minecraft out there. Some versions are stable, while others are in beta or even alpha stages. In general, it’s a good idea to play the latest stable version of the game. However, sometimes you may want to switch to an older version, either for nostalgia or for compatibility with other players.

To change your Minecraft version, first you need to find the right version that you want to play. The easiest way to do this is by using a third-party site like MCVersions.net. Once you’ve found the right version, download the Minecraft launcher for that version from the site.

Once you have the launcher, open it and log in with your Minecraft account. Then, click on the “launch options” button and select the version of Minecraft that you want to play from the drop-down menu. Finally, click on the “PLAY” button and enjoy your game!

Checking If Your Computer Can Run a Newer Version of Minecraft

Before updating Minecraft, first check whether your computer can run a newer version of the game. Each new version of Minecraft requires a slightly more powerful computer to run. To check this, open the System Requirements section of the Minecraft Wiki. The System Requirements page has a chart at the top that shows which versions of Minecraft can run on which types of computers.

If your computer meets the requirements for the version of Minecraft you want to play, you can update Minecraft by doing the following:

1. Open the Minecraft launcher. If you’re on Windows, this will be in your Start menu. If you’re on Mac, this will be in your Applications folder. If you’re on Linux, this will be in your ~/.minecraft folder.
2. Click on the ↑ arrow next to the PLAY button at the bottom-left corner of the launcher. This will open a drop-down menu with all of the available versions of Minecraft.
3. Hover over the version of Minecraft that you want to play, then click PLAY at the bottom-right corner of that window.

Changing the Version of Minecraft You’re Playing

Whether you’re playing on a server or on single player, you can easily change which version of Minecraft you’re playing on. In order to change your version, you’ll need to have the launcher open and be logged in. Once you’re logged in, click on the “Installations” tab and then select the version of Minecraft that you want to play.

If you’re playing on a server, you can also change your version by connecting to the server with a different client. For example, if you’re using the Vanilla client and want to connect to a CraftBukkit server, you’ll need to use the CraftBukkit client.

It’s also worth noting that some servers will force you to play on a certain version of Minecraft. In this case, you won’t be able to change your version without disconnecting from the server.

Playing Older Versions of Minecraft

One of the many features that the game of Minecraft has to offer its players is the ability to change between different versions of the game. This can be very useful if you want to play an older version of the game, or if you want to try out a new version that has just been released. In this article, we will show you how to change your Minecraft version.

First, you will need to launch the Minecraft launcher. You can do this by opening the launcher and clicking on the “Launch options” button in the top right corner.

Next, you will need to click on the “Add new” button in the bottom left corner. A new window will pop up where you will be able to select the version of Minecraft that you want to play. Simply select the version that you want and click on the “Done” button.

Finally, you will need to click on the “Play” button in order to launch your chosen version of Minecraft. Keep in mind that if you are playing an older version of Minecraft, some features may not be available and some things may look different than they do in newer versions.


There are a few reasons why you might want to change your Minecraft version. Maybe you’re trying to play with friends on an older version, or you want to try out a new map that requires a different version. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to change your Minecraft version.

To do this, you’ll need to access your Minecraft profile. This can be done by logging into your Mojang account and going to the “My Profile” page. From here, you can scroll down to the “Minecraft Profile” section and select the version of Minecraft you want to play. Once you’ve done this, simply launch the game and enjoy!
