Minecraft is one of the biggest video games available for Windows 10 and other platforms, and there are really good reasons for that. However, nothing is ever perfect, and that is why we’ve been hearing stories of some users being unable to push download Minecraft to their PC. You see, users have been trying to download Minecraft from the official website to their computer via push download. Apparently, even though the devices are listed, they disappear when attempts are made to download to the computer.
The download in most cases, stops immediately, which leaves the user confused as to what to do next. Now, this is not a huge problem when it comes down to getting Minecraft on your Windows 10 computer, it’s just a small issue on the path.
Unable to push download Minecraft to Windows 10 PC
We’re going to now look into how to fix this Minecraft failing to push to Windows 10 problem. Bear in mind, this is not hard to do, so follow along.
- Make sure Windows 10 is updated to the newest version
- Are you signed in to the Windows computer?
- Download Minecraft from the Microsoft Store
Let us talk about this in more detail.
1] Make sure Windows 10 is updated to the newest version
The first step is to make sure your Windows 10 computer that is on the device list, is updated to the newest version of the operating system. To make sure all is well, click on the Windows key + I to open the Settings application, then navigate to Update & Security.
Finally, go to Windows Update, then click on the section that says Check for Updates. Doing this should aid in making sure you have the latest version of Windows 10.
2] Are you signed in to the Windows computer?
That’s right, you need to make sure you are signed in on the Windows 10 computer with the same Microsoft Account used to sign in to the website.
Once this is confirmed, we suggest trying again to see if you can push Minecraft to the system or not.
3] Download Minecraft from the Microsoft Store
If everything fails, then how about just downloading Minecraft from the Microsoft Store? Yes, the game is available there as well, and the process to download it to your computer is simpler than ever. That’s it, so get it done and let us know of your success or lack thereof.
In closing, we have to say this is a unique problem because most people would rather download Minecraft the regular way. But hey, there is nothing wrong with having multiple download options for video games, so hopefully, other developers do similar things.
