Selecting and installing

So which skin do you prefer? Graceful and sensitive Elsa or masculine and gorgeous James Bond? Or maybe it will be your favorite hero we didn’t mention. No matter whom you choose, you should keep up with the instructions for installing different skins.

On a PC it’s a ridiculously easy process. You can simply buy a new skin inside the actual game. With the Skin Chooser feature, you can find the needed one, click on it. And your character will change his appearance at once.

You can as well find a free skin on the web and browse it on your computer. It will be saved as a .png file. Go next to the game’s Main Menu, to the tab “Browse Skin”. In the Downloads folder find the file, select it as a skin and save changes. Voila, your new cinematic or cartoon image is ready to use.

For the console users, the process will be a bit more difficult. And here’s the instruction which is common for all the console platforms. Select Minecraft from your console library. In the game menu find Help & Options. Then click on Change Skin. Doing so opens the Skin Packs page. Press A (Xbox) or X (PlayStation). With this action, you will set the selected skin by default. Then you'll see a green checkmark in the bottom-right box. If the selected skin isn't free, you'll be prompted to purchase it first. You can press B or circle to exit the pop-up.

If you want to have the needed skin for free not buying it from the game developer, you should check the web for an unpaid option. When you find it, get it for free. On PS4 transferring the skin into the game requires a USB-flash and a PC. Only connecting to a computer, you can have new skins on your PlayStation console. For Xbox, the process is much more convenient, and you will set a new skin simply from the console menu. Nintendo doesn’t let you set free skins from the Internet. Nevertheless, it has a huge compilation of inbuilt skins to select from.

Changing a skin on the Minecraft PE is a Sunday picnic. It’s a bit similar to installing skins on PC. You just go to your mobile browser and get the needed skin in .png extension. In option menu select “Choose New Skin” and select the saved one. After confirming, the new skin is ready to revive in your mobile gadget.
