To change your username in the Java version of Minecraft, first, start the Minecraft Launcher app. In the top left corner of the window, click on your name and a menu will drop down.

You should now be on a page that shows all your Minecraft games. Under Java Version, select Profile Name. In the box, input whatever name you want to appear above your character in the game.

How to Change Your Username in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition
Bedrock Edition of Minecraft is a bit more complicated but it’s just as easy to change. Since the game is on different platforms, you’ll need to change your username on either platform if you don’t have a Microsoft account associated with it. If you’re playing by yourself or with friends on Nintendo Switch or PlayStation, your account name will be whatever your username is.
If you’re playing on mobile, PC, Xbox, or any other console with a Microsoft account connected, you’ll need to change your Xbox Gamertag. To do this, go to the Change Gamertag page and sign in with your Microsoft account. Enter your new name here and go through the process of changing it. Anytime you sign in to Minecraft with your Microsoft account, the change will happen.
