Players can get the demo version of Minecraft on Windows, and on a macOS, the process is the same, but the player has a few steps that they will need to complete to claim their version and get their demo going. Players should follow these steps in order:

  • The first thing the player needs to do is go to the website available here. Once they get there, they will be able to download the client for both the Windows and macOS versions of the game.
  • Once players have successfully downloaded it, they will need to click on it to start the installation process.

  • Once the game is installed, players will want to double-click on the icon to start the game.
  • Players should then be inside of the Launcher. Once there, players should click the sign-up button and create an account.
  • After the account has been created, players should log into that same account inside the Launcher.
  • There should now be an option on the screen for players to select "Play Demo." This option should be selected, and then the game will start.
