alright, so my game was having problems loading (taking WAY too long to go past the mojang logo, not responding) so i decided to redownload it. however, when i redownloaded it, it just opens up the launcher with a white screen, with the minecraft icon in the corner. i've already checked the compatability tab on the properties, and it's not checked, honestly have no clue what's going on. maybe it's some leftover file i missed? i'm not sure.
i keep trying to delete the .minecraft folder and it keeps saying 'The action can't be completed because the folder or file in it is open in another program. Close the folder or file and try again.' I've got minecraft uninstalled atm and no other file tabs are open.
hello! sorry for the late response, but I decided to try opening it up again before doing what you suggested and it just kinda…. sorted itself out. I've gpt no idea what happened with any of this but thank you guys for helping !
