    It sounds like this is a question for Minecraft Bedrock based on the name (Minecraft for Windows) and version number (1.18.30). Support on this site is for Minecraft: Education Edition, so the other answers were related to that.

    That said, I may be able to help - you can use the Minecraft Launcher to manage your installs. I know you can choose which Java version you are using, although I'm not sure if that feature is available for Bedrock. For any questions about Minecraft for Windows, you can ask them on

    To downgrade your client, you will need to uninstall the Beta version and install the live version from our website here: Download | Minecraft Education Edition.

    Dominick I am assuming that if someone has an old install, like for example I have the 1-17-31 install, they can reinstall that? I ask because the 1-17-32 broke my code, and Micah M says the next update should have that fixed, but I would like to have it work for now. =] Perhaps this could also help this user.

    I keep all versions. One never knows!

    We don't keep links to all of the old builds available online (we keep the latest release and latest beta available). Trying to use old versions generally results in lots of multiplayer problems. Keeping links or old builds as Bryan suggests is what I'd recommend.

    I had the same concern as you and found a solution. There is a solution here, but I'm sorry it's Korean. But it's not an official method, so save important data.
