I have changed my Minecraft skin and now I feel a bit nostalgic. I have tried to find a solution to this already but all I can find is possible “Steve skins” on the various skin websites. I want the original skin exactly as it would be if I created a new account.
I also can’t seem to find anything on the Mojang account preferences to reset this back to its original state.
How can I change back to the original Steve skin?
Navigate to the minecraft profile page and click the “reset” button under “reset your skin”.
(As pointed out by @Quinte in his answer)
You can get the Steve Skin on Minecraft.net
- Log in, go to Profile
- Download the reference skin
- Upload the reference skin
In this case you will have a Steve skin.
Uploading the reference skin still counts as there being a skin, because, well, it is there. The problem here is that skins uploaded to the skin server take precedence over skins included in Resource Packs (e.g. the default skin in Sphax PureBDCraft).
Unfortunately there’s no way to remove the skin from the skin-server completely.
