Convert Bedrock (Windows 10) to Java (Windows)

This guide will explain step by step how to convert a Minecraft world from Bedrock Edition on Windows 10 to Java Edition on Windows. The Universal Minecraft Tool is equipped with a fully updated world converter so you can play your worlds on another platform.

You may refer to the Converter Interface page at any point during this guide for additional help.

1. Install the Universal Minecraft Tool

Before you can convert your world, you'll need to install the Universal Minecraft Tool onto your computer. If you haven't already, follow this quick Installation Guide to get set up.

Once you've logged in, click the Converter tab to access the Converter.


2. Select the Input World

Click the Bedrock button on the Input step of the converter. This will bring up the Bedrock Edition world selection dialog window.


Option 1

The Universal Minecraft Tool will automatically fill the list with the Bedrock Edition worlds installed on your computer. (These are the worlds located at C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds). This location can be changed in the application settings.

Click on the world you want to convert and then click Open World.


Option 2

If you don't have Bedrock Edition installed or you want to convert a world that is stored somewhere else on your computer, click the Browse for a World Folder... button to select it manually.


Option 3

Bedrock Edition worlds may also be found as a single .mcworld file. Click the Browse for a World File... button to select it manually.


3. Choose the Output Edition and Version

Click the Java button to choose it as the output edition, then click Next. For extra control, use the dropdown menu beneath it to select a target version. The default option will always be the latest supported version.


4. Conversion Options

Specify any conversion options you wish, then click Next. For a full breakdown of these options, visit the LINK COMING SOON page.


5. Convert

Click the Start Conversion button to begin the conversion process. Sit back and relax as the Universal Minecraft Tool intelligently converts every aspect of your world!


6. Save the Output World

Once the conversion has finished, click the Save World button.


This will bring up the Java world save dialog window. It will automatically show the installation directory for Java Edition (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves). Feel free to save it to a different location if you'd prefer, however, Java Edition can only play worlds stored in this installation directory.

Enter a name for the output world and then click Save



That's all there is to it! Your world can now be enjoyed on Java (Windows).
