Download and install Minecraft on your Laptop or Desktop computer

4.5 Rating: 4.5 - 696,428 votes

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 this app 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: 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 icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app 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 on Andriod, Iphone
$6.99 On iTunes
Download Android

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

  • Minecraft is WAY better than Fortnite

    By chrislbac
    Ok, almost everyone who plays minecraft has seen fortnite and probably stayed with Minecraft and anored the new game called Fortnite. And I will never even enter fortnite! The thing is is that Minecraft can be sometimes a little boring, but I still do not want to enter Fortnite. And maybe mojang should add more ores, more weapons, dog breads, more food (like pizza!), and where you can tame bats for a pet. And would be cool if 2 different animals could breed and have a baby and look like both of them ( for example let’s say a dog and a cat breed and the make a baby that has the energy of that dog and would have a long tall as that same cat and would be colorful ). And my ratings for Minecraft is 5 stars cause I love this game. Almost half of the world plays Minecraft. And I was born a little bit after mojang put Minecraft on the shelf and when it got released to this beautiful world. And I love the updates you guys put in Minecraft. And I payed 6 to 7 dollars (I forgot how much it costs cause I have been playing it since I was 4 or 5) and it’s worth it!!!!! I have many friends to play with me in Minecraft. Btw- I probably did not tell you but Fortnite makes your brain melt like ice cream in the hot summer sun!!! And if people are reading this and play Minecraft and Fortnite that ok cause the people are playing Minecraft still. And if they are not playing Minecraft but only play Fortnite then your brain will melt!
  • A new update for 1.14

    By didomwnicocantonu
    I’ve played Minecraft ever since I was a small kid and I’ve grown up playing it but there is something armor stands lack a sitting pose I wish that was and update cause I don’t like having to say “/give (blank) command_block” and then putting a command which when I put it it dosent work because it’s old but this game is what I call a master piece even if its squares but one thing can you make a story to the game and make mobs have a different look like the zombie because the zombie is just a re skinned steve like make the zombie have ripped clothes and make the creeper burn in day light cause when you build in survival you have about a 10% chance of a creeper entering in your unfinished house one time I had to be in creative to not get exploded and can you make camp fires bigger also make “old villages” it would sound like this it’s a normal village but there are spiders and cob webs and broken walls and most houses would have no walls because they are broken and can you make skeletons be able to hide in places like bushes and can you add a crouch animation cause I’m tired of having to use scarf folds (I think I spelled it wrong) and can you make sharks and whales and crabs or the crab spider or sea spider and when you sleep can it last for about 2 minutes and add a place called dream world like in the older versions of Minecraft where there were flying islands
  • Good game, but...

    By Yumkip
    I loved this game since I was little and still do! But there is a few things that aren’t my cup of tea. 1. my brothers have an update that I don’t, and I’ve tried to see what was going on. IDK if I just can’t get the update or it glitched and gave them the update, but something went wrong. 2.the new texture. I know you put a lot of effort into it and I really appreciate that, but it just takes away the charm it once had. 3. The new hostile mob is cool, but I just don’t see why it attacks villagers. I know it’s just a game, but I’ve become very close with them. Soon we’ll end up with no villagers. 4. Not being able to control llamas is frustrating! Maybe if you added some control I would like it better. 5. The underwater zombies are annoying! They are zombies that drowned, they shouldn’t just end up in the ocean! 6. Now I know that we have a few pets in the game that are based off of the ones irl. But we can’t tame rabbits, and those are pets irl. But in reality, it’s not just the rabbits, we need things like guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, mice, rats, other types of birds, and much more! 7. The strays are barely being found, same with witches. And I know I just complained of two hostile mobs, but we need to see certain ones more often. Those are all my complaints for now. Other than those things, the game is PERFECT!!
  • I LOVE Minecraft but....

    By D00-D00
    I absolutely love Minecraft but I don’t love the new update that just came out. For example my inventory is weird. I personally like using the classic version instead of pocket and ever since the last update both versions is very glitchy and it doesn’t show the name of the item. Additionally, when you press an item it sort of highlights the box and I don’t like it. In addition to the latest update I have some suggestions for the new update to make it more enjoyable. 1- New breeds of dogs and cats! I feel that Minecraft needs more dog and cat types to kinda freshen it up and for it to be more interesting. 2- More food! Maybe coffee, sandwiches, burgers, French fries, etc would make it cool. 3- Crazy Craft! I see you tubers (ldshadowlady,smallishbeans,etc) using crazy craft on their computers and I think a free version on Minecraft PE so that all players could get crazy craft and play like the minecrafters they look up to would be really nice! 4- Cameras and Phones. I feel like we need a technology update. I think working phones, computers, cameras, and any thing technological would be really cool to add to the game. Finally, more furniture! Couches, vanity’s, toilet bowls, mirrors, closets and basically anything you would find in a house! I think that, that idea is really cool and would attract many players! If you can do this than thank you! Sorry for being so needy :(

  • Loading screen freezing

    By Anthony_Rdz_72
    Minecraft is an amazing game but I think there needs to be a small update when you open the app, the small problem I’m having right now is when I open the app the loading screen would freeze and crash my game. Hope there could be something that mojang can fix this small issue.

  • The best game ever!

    By jridsinsi
    Anyone who says Fortnite is better than Minecraft is wrong. Also, Fortnite has 4.6 stars while Minecraft only has 4.4. We can’t let Fortnite win. It’s time for a fricking crusade.
