If you are on PC edition: You are using the wrong account to login to minecraft.net

If you are on Mobile Edition / Windows 10 Edition: Open the skindex page on your phone. Pick a skin. Click Download button, not upload to minecraft on skindex. When you download it, go into app and apply it:

  • Click the hanger icon.

  • Click the gray skin.

  • Click Choose New Skin button.

Choose New Skin button

  • Pick the file you just downloaded, pick the correct skin type.

  • Click Confirm Skin. Your skin should be applied.

minecraftskins.com is only for the PC/Mac versions of Minecraft. MCPE uses an in-game skin system that I am somewhat unfamiliar with, but, in essence, you can choose from one of many preset skins, or create and use your own.

Editors Note: The minecraft.net website has templates for both "steve" and "alex" skins to aid you in all your skin-creation related quests. Unfortunately, I am unable to log in to get the precise link at this time, and I apologize for that.

  • Wrong. You can use your own skin in PE.
