The easiest way to play Minecraft without a graphics card is by using the Minecraft Java Edition launcher on a desktop computer. The Java Edition is the original version of Minecraft, developed by Mojang. The official launcher for this version can be downloaded here: https://minecraft.net/download
In order to get started, you will need to make sure you have Java installed on your computer. If not, you can download it here: https://www.java.com
Once installed, open up your browser and navigate to the link below:
Click on “Download” next to “Minecraft” and then save the file somewhere on your hard drive that you can easily find later (be sure to note where it’s saved). Then open up the file and double-click it in order to launch the installer program. Follow all of the steps until installation is complete (this may take some time depending on how fast your internet connection is) and when done click “Launch”. This will open up a new window asking which profile you want to use – select “Create New Profile” and give it an easy name like “Java Edition” or something else that makes sense.
