Q: When I change the skin, it stays the same in the game.

A: To reduce load on your server, the client caches the skins. Please restart Minecraft to make sure that you are seeing the latest skins for yourself and your friends.

Q: Nothing happens when I start the launcher.

A: Sometimes Windows does not properly bind JAR files to be executed by Java. In this case, you have to try using Jarfix to re-associate the file type.

Q: I cannot login to my friend’s server/I get Connection Timeout errors.

A: Usually, this is either a firewall or NAT problem. Whoever is running the server needs to make sure that they have TCP port 25565 (or whatever port they are using) open to the internet.

Q: I keep getting “Failed to verify username” once connecting to multiplayer servers.

A: You are able to only use the servers that use custom authentication plugins or are in offline mode. Official servers will not let you connect.
