See, this is a strange one. I couldn't find anywhere on the internet with a solution to the problem, they were all similar but different. When I click on the Minecraft launcher, it starts. But it doesn't load. It just stays as a blank gray window. Like the one you see for a split second when you start the launcher, and then after that the UI loads in. But it never does, it just stays gray:

Screenshot of the launcher.

Please help. Also sometimes it works, but it's a very small chance and very infuriating.

    At that point I would delete everything minecraf off my computer, and then reinstall from scratch. (Make a backup of any single player world you wanna keep.)

  • I do not know how to fix this, but you could try using a lightweight launcher such as multimc.org, which would probably fix it.

  • Can you provide a screenshot of your entire screen with the launcher presented? Additionally, I would report it as a bug. Sep 20 '21 at 18:18
  • @TacoタコスI would, but as soon as I tried opening the launcher to send a screenshot, it happened to work. next time I start Minecraft i'll try to screenshot
