    posted a message on This forum is for Minecraft Windows 10 Edition, not PC Minecraft

    This forum is just for "Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta" support, it is not for PC (Java) Minecraft. These are two different games, two different versions of the game.


    The PC version of Minecraft, built using Java, has 2 support forums, Unmodified Client Support and Modded Client Support, please visit these forums if you're having problems with the PC version of Minecraft.


    You'll get faster, better help by posting your problem or question in the correct MC version's forum so the people familiar with that version can help you.
