You’ve probably heard of Minecraft unless you’ve been living under a block. Users recording over 126 million active players engage in this game monthly. With this large traffic and Minecraft’s regular updates, occasional problems are not very surprising. One such issue is Minecraft stuck on Mojang screen and not loading.

All things aside, here is how to fix Minecraft Stuck on Mojang Screen.

Key Takeaways
  • Performing a Restart on Minecraft Client
  • Disabling Discord Overlay
  • Updating Graphics Drivers
  • Ending the Runtime Broker
  • Removing the Adware

Perform A Restart On Minecraft Client:

As obvious it may seem, your first approach should be restarting Minecraft. In many cases, this seems to resolve the issue. This is because a restart can clear any temporary files or processes that may be interfering with the game’s ability to launch properly. Additionally, a restart can reset the game’s settings and give it a clean slate to work with.

Using Task Manager, force close the game.

  1. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE->Task Manager->Processes->minecraftlauncjer.exe or javaw.exe->End task.

Upon restarting your Minecraft screen, the issue will be resolved.

For Mac:

If you’re facing the issue of Minecraft stuck on the Mojang screen on Mac, there are a few ways by which you can fix the issue. The first method is mentioned below; 

  1. Click on Options->Force Update. 
  2. Lastly, all you need to do is run. 
 Important: It is important to delete any texture packs you have running as well. 

There is another method that you can try if the first one doesn’t work. For the fix, you will have to delete your Minecraft data folder. 

  1. Click on Start Menu->%appdata%->Roaming. 
  2. Delete the folder that is labeled .minecraft and restart it. 
  3. Login again to Minecraft. 

After that, you will be able to log in successfully without any issues. 

Disable Discord Overlay:

As surprising as it may sound, users tend to ignore this method of fixing Minecraft stuck on Mojang Screen. Discord, a software intended to help gamers unite and communicate with each other while playing games often can disturb the gaming experience with its overlay dynamic. So disabling it fixes this issue.

Read our guide to find out in detail how to disable any third-party overlays in your games.

Update Graphics Drivers:

Old graphics drivers can also be the cause of this issue. Updating the graphics driver in most cases helps solve the issue. Sometimes, updating your launcher can be the solution you are looking for.

End The Runtime Broker:

This fix for Minecraft stuck on Mojang Screen worked for me and it seems to be working for a lot of players. The Runtime Broker is a Windows process that manages permissions for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, which includes Minecraft. In some cases, the Runtime Broker process can become unresponsive or consume excessive resources, causing Minecraft to freeze or crash. You can try it out and hopefully, it’ll fix the issue.

  1. Launch Minecraft
  2. Press Ctrl + Shift + Escape->Runtime Broker->End Task.

If however, you’re looking for a permanent fix, you should try uninstalling the apps that use runtime Broker.

To uninstall the runtime broker, perform the following steps.

  1. Open the Start menu and select Windows Powershell(admin)
  2. Once opened, type or paste the following code: Get-AppxPackage *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage and press Enter.
  3. Restart your computer and hopefully, Minecraft will load successfully.
Doing the above steps will delete Windows Photos so if you have any important photos there, I’d recommend backing up that data to a different app first.

Removing The Adware:

Adware often causes various applications to stall or not run properly, so it’s best to remove useless Adware to avoid this issue. To remove useless adware, you can use Adwcleaner which is available for free. Many players have also claimed this fix worked for them. To download and run it, use the following steps.

  1. Visit the Malwarebytes official website and download Adwcleaner.
  2. After you’ve done the installation, run a scan and remove any malware found.
  3. Restart your computer and see if Minecraft launches successfully.

Reinstall Minecraft:

If the above fixes don’t work for you, opt for a clean reinstall of the Minecraft client. Clearing out the accumulated cache and cleaning up the files in your Minecraft directory manually.

Important: Make sure you have saved these files in a backup system to prevent data loss.

My Thoughts On Minecraft Getting Stuck On Mojang Screen Issue:

Although Minecraft is a very old and relatively well-optimized game, there have been numerous bugs and errors that have popped up over the years. As an avid player of Minecraft myself, I will say the dev team is a bit slow in adding patches and updates.

So while disappointing, the best we can do is report these issues and hope the dev team solves them while we look for solutions elsewhere. Meanwhile, I hope this guide helped you to fix the issue.
