So I've been using the new Minecraft launcher since I received it without really caring about the difference, but recently when I open the shortcut on my taskbar it tries to confirm if I want to exit the launcher or reset my config due to me using a newer launcher:
So I wouldn't really mind using the old launcher again but the thing that I'm worried about is resetting my settings/configuration. Does this mean my profiles on the launcher? Or might it actually mean my Minecraft worlds? Also, will it delete my versions as well?
The path that the shortcut gives me is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft\MinecraftLauncher.exe"
I would prefer to be able to return to the old version but don't mind the new launcher.
This seems to have fixed itself. I will leave the question open though, in case there's an answer and someone needs it.
