I want to change my Minecraft username, but I cannot find a way to do this anywhere. Is this possible? If so, how can I do so?

Simply said, this is not possible. As stated on the official Mojang site:

Changing usernames

We do not currently support changing, editing, or correcting usernames, though this may be a feature in the future. Make sure that you choose wisely; it will be used for your multiplayer persona and is visible to others.

However, Mojang is working on a way to make this possible in the future using the new Mojang accounts system. For now though, you can't change it.

Follow these steps. A helpful video tutorial can be found here.

  1. Migrate your Minecraft account to a Mojang account at
  2. Log in to your Mojang account.
  3. You'll see all the games you play. Next to your Minecraft username you'll see a link to change it.

Hope this helped!
