How to Change Player Skins in Minecraft Java Edition


Skins are one of the best parts of Minecraft. They largely offer no benefit to players, but being able to switch from the standard Steve or Alex skin is pretty awesome. Custom skins, skin pack skins, or even character skins can all make the game a little more enjoyable.

Most players have access to multiple skins that they can put on at any time. It’s a fairly simple process, so once crafters have learned how to do it, they can repeat the process quite easily.

Moods change, so players’ feelings towards a Minecraft skin will also change and this can create a skin usage carousel. Either way, here’s how to change it to Java Edition.

Although there are two different versions of the game, there are many similarities between Bedrock and Java Edition. Fortunately, the skin changes remain the same in both versions.

Whenever someone changes their skin on minecraft during the stream/bit I always imagine the characters going around like animal crossing characters when they change outfits like this g2A3bI5qgF

There are still two main methods for changing skin. One of them is in-game and the other happens before entering a world.

Doing this before opening a world is quite simple. When loading into Minecraft, players have a few options.

Account option, profile option, game option, settings and market will all be on the first screen. Players can access the profile section at the bottom of the screen to edit anything they want.

Once there, they have five options to preset a skin and emote combo. This can also be customized with the standard Steve or Alex skin.

Selecting one of these locations will open customization options. The first tab is the character creator, but the second tab, called classic skins, is the correct one.

Players can click on the “Owned” option and access the pack they want. From there, they can find the right skin and select it. This will be automatically saved and considered the default until players change the selected character slot.

Doing so in-game includes the same process. The route to get there, however, is a little different. Players will need to pause their world (find a safe place to wait if it’s a multiplayer world) and enter the profile section.

From there, the steps are the same and players can change or modify their character presets. It will still be automatically saved after players are done.
