Solution 3: Change the Password of Your Minecraft Account

  2. Now open a web browser and navigate to the Forgot Your Password Minecraft

  1. Open the Control Panel of your server and stop the server.
    Stop the Minecraft Server
  2. Now in the left pane of the Control Panel window, expand Files and then click on Setup.
