If you want to install and use the Minecraft app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Minecraft for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Minecraft for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Minecraft in the search bar and press Search. Click on Minecraft application icon. A window of Minecraft on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Minecraft icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Minecraft for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Minecraft for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download Andriod, Iphone

$6.99 On iTunes

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Minecraft Is Life!!!

    By •CheyCheyPlayz•
    I love this game soooo much! But I have a few issues to note. Number 1... we need more mobs and animals and maybe the ability to tame mobs, such as silverfish and creepers. Also, add in a fishbowl for taming fish, and special food for mob taming. Also, where are the turtles? I haven’t seen them yet. Number 2... I have a BIG problem. When I’m playing Minecraft, My menu and pause and setting AND chat screens are all very small. Also, my buttons for moving, sneaking, inventory, pause/chat, and jumping are all invisible. Also, if there’s chat on the screen, I can’t see it. Everything on my screen is invisible except for my hand, anything in it (when something is in it), and whatever is in front of me. Also, I can’t get into my inventory anymore and I can’t switch to different things in my inventory/hotbar anymore either. Somebody please tell me how to fix this, because I really love Minecraft and I can’t even play it! Number 3... can you please put famous YouTuber’s servers in the featured servers area? It would be much easier for me to get into their awesome servers, such as MooseCraft’s, 09SharkBoy’s, and UnspeakableGaming’s server called TheSquadMC. I really love this server and I want to join it with ease. Thank you for taking time to read this, and please take fixing my HUGE problem into consideration. I would really appreciate it if you do, because I want to play Minecraft normally again. I love Minecraft, Thank You, And have a great day. 🙂
  • Amazing Game!

    By Faith Minecraft
    I have been playing MCPE since 2014. I have seen some of the most game changing updates. I think that the aquatic update is the best so far. I really think you at Mojang have out done yourselves. I ha e a couple requests: Minecraft on the PC has things that PE doesn’t have, like Shields and Spectral, Luck, and Slow falling arrows and potions. I think this would be good to have. Also, I know Minecraft isn’t really realistic, but I think that adding stuff that would make it more realistic would be pretty cool. Adding things like ovens and stoves and other kitchen supplies for builders like myself would be ideal for building an epic structure. The best I can do when building a cool home is use a texture pack that has this. Also, I think it would be cool to have either lanterns that emit light when in the players hand or off hand, or just having a torch in the main hand or off hand emit light. It bugs me that I have to place down a torch when I come across some ore that I want to mine in a cave. Another thing I think would be cool to add is a thirst bar. The player’s thirst bar would go down if they haven’t had any water to drink. You could also find drinks like soda and milk in generated structures like villages. The player could craft a water canteen to drink from 3 stone or 3 iron. I think that would make the game a lot cooler. But overall, I spend most of my time playing this game and I look forward to future amazing updates!! ~Faith (FaithSunshine55)
  • Love the game but there is a problem and update Minecraft please read

    By freindly owl
    Please add mods for iPad I will appreciate that a that I will play Minecraft forever I love this game a lot. Add like a place where people can put ears on like animal ears the look realistic and Minecraft like ears and tails. Add a place where people can change their size also change the legs make it work for severs and the games of people don’t add special effects of the character and people can save it. Keep up the amazing and awesome work you can make it today days, weeks, months, years seconds, minutes, milliseconds or nanoseconds I don’t even care how long it takes. The problem is when I make my Minecraft game most of the Water don’t flow and I don’t like it a lot thanks happy holidays :D . Love the game forgot to say add more plants to Minecraft like poison ivy and poison oak for land now time for under water. Moss balls and duck weed make fresh water plants die in the ocean. Make salt water plants die in fresh water then make a water bucket a new one like ocean water and lake water thanks if you do this all or a little. Even add more mobs and aquatic animals add a shark and other animals form lakes and the ocean a whale. My favorite type of shrimp is ghost shrimp please add that type of shrimp there not for eating you can make the player eat it it’s your game right. Make the animals eat to survive love you see your game now I will play it today at a server I hope you can see me there.
  • Amazing- here's why

    By Corgi1982
    I love this game, it is my favorite in the whole world. The reason why is because if you have any idea- here is a place that you can make it. I have made castles that takes minutes just to get from one side to the other (they are really big) and I have made houses that have twenty levels. I have made cross country skiing courses, that are huge! Mushroom tree houses, islands of chickens, underwater mine cart, you name it! Any out of the box idea is capable of being done, and no idea is to small or big. My friends and I all have Minecraft, and we support each other in our ideas and help with them too. It has made our friendship stronger the past few years, and will continue to. We can all play on it together, and it still remains with no glitches. Another thing, most people like the building and mining part of Minecraft, but the graphics are beautiful. The under the water scenes with the dolphins and coral to the canyons with the red, white, yellow, and brown clay. The lakes and the jungles. Even the swamps are pretty! It also has real work situations, like hunger and how you need to find a place to sleep at night. It has helped me get a head start in science, when we went through the minerals section o knew what had ores and how to reduce it down to its values and I knew which minerals you would see first when diving straight down. Thank you to the creators of Minecraft, for making such a wonderful game.

  • Taming Animals

    By GGalaxite
    I really love this game but for some reason I can’t tame wolves or give my dogs commands anymore. I’m on a phone, but I don’t know if this is happening with everybody else, but this is terrible, especially since I adore the animals in this game.

  • What’s the point this is sad and awful and used to be good

    By trubosteel
    Hello, if anyone is reading this, I barely play Minecraft anymore, it’s so lonely. The reason behind that is Xbox live, really, why do we need this even without Xbox live or even realms Minecraft servers would work perfectly. Also why does it say you need permission to join servers, WHAT to detect hackers, moderators ban hackers on servers like Mineplex or brokenlens, not Microsoft. Even innocent players who don’t have Xbox live trying to join a server get caught up in this like really stop and fix it. I’m also gonna talk about other “issues”. The mine store, or whatever you call it. It’s pointless to buy skin packs or worlds you still can recreate thoughts world or skin packs. And there’s even apps and websites like mcpedl.com to download maps or addons etc. another one is realms this one isn’t a issue but it should get fix, can’t we all have accounts in Minecraft. Not Xbox live, like to save worlds if your iPad or iPhone broke so you can start on a new iPad or iPhone, a lot of people will enjoy that plus email is optional form younger children. Also make servers free plus realms free to join public or private. them there’s mods it’s not a big deal but lots of people want some crap in there game like baby’s or more animals, car etc. That’s stupid kids wanting something new, most will ignore those “kids”. Finally payment why do we need to pay realms something else we paid for the game then we pay again for realms. Everyone thinks before free for all, but now free for the assigned. Why this is why people quit no change, not revelutionary and will get worse. Sadly there’s not hope in mcpe for those don’t have a Xbox live account. There’s a point where games can’t compete against any games like Fortnite so that it for my review, farewell Minecraft. -trubosteel
