1. How do I find my friend’s username(user ID) to add friends on Minecraft pc?
If your friend has not told you their username, but they have a Mojang account (which is needed in order to play on the official Minecraft servers), you can use the Mojang website to look it up.
Simply visit this page and type in their email address which is associated with their account, then press ‘Search’. This will bring up a list of possible usernames for your friend; simply select one from the list and click “Proceed” to be taken straight to the Minecraft login screen.
If your friend is playing on an unofficial server (i.e. not one of the servers listed on Mojang’s website), you will need to ask them for their username before you can add them as a friend.
2. How to find my friend in-game display name to add friends on Minecraft pc?
Once you have added your friends to your Minecraft PC account,
If your friend is playing on a server that you do not have the address for, but they are in your game session (i.e. you’re both on the same server), then their username should show up next to them in the player list. Click on their username to send them a friend request.
If your friends are playing on different servers, then they will not be visible in the player list and you won’t know which server they’re currently on unless you ask them or check it yourself using an external program. To play with multiple people at once, make sure that every friend you want to add is on the same server and has the IP address of that server.
If your friends are playing on different servers, or if they do not show up in the player list at all (which often happens when they’re hosting their own private world), then you can find them by using an external program such as NBTExplorer.

How to play with friends on Minecraft PC using an external program?
If you and your friends are having trouble joining each other in-game, or if you want to join a friend’s world that is not listed on Mojang’s website, then you can use an external program such as NBTExplorer to help you out.
NBTExplorer is a program that allows you to view and edit the contents of NBT files, which are used by Minecraft to store data about players, worlds, items, and more.
This means that you can use NBTExplorer to see what server your friends are currently playing on, as well as see what world they are in and what items they have in their inventory.
To get started, download NBTExplorer from the link, then extract (unzip) the files to a location that you can easily remember.
Next, open up NBTExplorer and click on the “File” menu at the top, then select “Open Minecraft Dir” and choose the “Minecraft” folder (the one that contains ‘ saves ‘, ‘ options ‘, etc).
Now open up your friends’ world using NBTExplorer by going to File -> Open, or dragging-and-dropping their save file right into the window.
Once you have opened up their world, you can explore it and see what server they’re on, as well as what items they have in their inventory.
If you want to add a friend to your game session, right-click on their username in the player list and select “Join Game”. This will add them to your game and they will be able to see and interact with everything that you see.
If you want to remove a friend from your game session, right-click on their username in the player list and select “Kick Player”. This will kick them out of the game and they will have to rejoin using the IP address of the server.
Finally, if you want to export your friends’ world so that you can play it on your own computer, go to File -> Export World and choose a location to save it to.

How Can I Know My Friend’s IP Address?
If you want to play on a server with your friends, but don’t know what their IP address is, then ask them for it!
It’s also possible that they do not have an IP address. If this is the case, however, they can still host their own private world and invite people to join using their username instead of an IP address.
If you’re not sure whether your friend has an IP address, then ask them for it and/or check if they can host a private world using their username!
Once you have added your friends to your Minecraft PC account, you should be able to see all of them in-game as long as each player is playing on the same server.
