Once logged in, scroll down until you find "Profile information" and click on "Change".
Enter your new desired Minecraft username and click on "Change Profile Name".
Once this is done, your new Minecraft username will take effect.

Limitations of Minecraft Username Changes
Planning to change your Minecraft username? Let's look at some limitations and issues before you do.
- Wait time: You can change your Minecraft username once every 30 days. That's right, just once a month.
- Length: Your username must be 3 to 16 characters long. Not too short or too long, okay?
- Symbols: You can only use uppercase and lowercase letters (A to Z), numbers (0 to 9), and underscores (_). No other special characters allowed!
- Keep it clean: Please avoid offensive or inappropriate content. We want a friendly gaming community!
- Bans stick: Changed your username but still banned from a server? Your unique ID remains the same, and bans may follow you.
- Friend confusion: If you change your username, friends may not recognize you. Make sure to let them know you've got a new name!
- Your progress stays: Good news! Changing your username won't mess up your progress or data. Your unique ID ensures everything stays safe.
So, consider these points before changing your Minecraft username. Pick a name you love and that follows the rules. Be thoughtful, have fun, and game on!
