Some people have been getting this error recently since the new update:

The game crashed whilst initializing game
Error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: GLFW error 65542: WGL: The driver does not appear to support OpenGL

This problem has been fixed by simply updating your graphics device! (There are also other solutions shown at the end of this tutorial.)


Step 1.) Go to "start" and search for "device manager" (this will open your device manager where you can see all sorts of configurable settings.)

Step 2.) Under "display adapters", you will see your graphics device(s). Right click the one you need / use and click "update software".

Step 3.) Next, you can decide to either automatically search for a driver software or you can manually go into your folders and select one of your choice to update.

From there, if you followed my directions, your selected device will be updated to it's latest version. So now all you need to do is run Minecraft v1.13+
and your client should load in without a problem!

*If this solution didn't help, try updating your Java!*

Had this issue and just stuck to Minecraft Bedrock Edition lol. Will try this tonight, thank you!
