Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to play some minecraft?
Then when you try to log in, Login Failed " You have enterted a wrong email "

You start to freak out, oh no what do I do know,

I have found a solution to all theses peoples problems!

Mac Tutorial First

First you need to go to the Folder of Minecraft, Then you should see tons of other stuff

All you need to find is launcher_profiles if you have already logged in, It will be down a little and will show you your email!
WINDOWS TUTORIAL FROM OZ
1. in your start menu in the search bar type Run
2. in the Run window type %appdata%
3. click on .minecraft foler
4. scroll down until you see Launcher_Profile.json ( you will need either notepad or notepad++ )

All the profiles that have been purchased will come up with this:

"displayName": -----
"accessToken": -----
"userid": -----
"uuid": ----
"username": -----

All profiles that have not been purchased will come up with this:

demo-BUNCH OF NUMBERS AND LETTERS
"accessToken": -----
"userid": -----
"username": ----

So here is what happened...
I signed out of my main minecraft account and signed in with a different account so that my brother can play. I forgot my email and cannot sign back in. There is no account in the "Existing user" section. Then I found this sight and went under the "Go" tab and went to library-Application support- Minecraft-launcher_profiles.json... Heres what I found. Just saying my main account is steampunkerPlayz... And my brothers account is iscoolguy... PLZ REPLY QUICKLY :'(
