  • In the Microsoft Store, click on the Library icon at the bottom left just above Help. It looks like three upright books, with the third leaning into the left two.
  • From the Library, you can either choose to update every piece of software you have installed from the Microsoft Store, or you can update Minecraft Bedrock alone.
