How To Re-Install the Windows Minecraft Client

You should only re-install your minecraft game client software if you are experiencing major problems that only occur on your machine (i.e. your other players do not experience these problems as well)


  1. Press Windows-R to Open the Run dialog
  2. Type %appdata% in the text field
  3. Navigate into the .minecraft folder
  4. Copy the saves folder to a different location
  5. Go back to the %appdata% directory
  6. Delete the .minecraft folder
  7. Start the Minecraft.exe file (which will download Minecraft again)
  8. Close Minecraft when it displays the title screen
  9. Copy the saves folder back into the new .minecraft folder.
    You can overwrite any data that's currently in this folder from the new download
