    There are a few steps in order to correctly do this, so follow the steps below slowly and ensure you are at the right stages!

    Step 1: Open your Minecraft launcher.

    It is as easy as that! Open up your Minecraft launcher and you should see this as an example: [​IMG]

    Step 2: Where to change your Minecraft version.

    Firstly, go to the bottom left section of your Minecraft Launcher: [​IMG]
    Secondly, click on the 'Edit Profile': [​IMG]
    Next, you will be shown with a 'Profile Editor' similar to this: [​IMG]

    Click on the dropbox 'Use version:' ...[​IMG]

    ... to get this: [​IMG]

    Then, choose a version of Minecraft. You can scroll down and find other previous versions of Minecraft too!
    Finally when you have chosen your Minecraft version, e.g. 1.8, click on 'Save Profile': [​IMG]

    How to downgrade your Minecraft from 1.11 to 1.8 (New Launcher)
    As we all know now, Minecraft has updated its launcher! So down below I will be illustrating the steps in order to downgrade your version!

    Step 1: Open your Minecraft launcher.

    Again, it is as easy as that! The example below is what you should have:
    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Where to change your Minecraft version.

    First, select 'Launcher options': [​IMG]
    You should then have this appear as your launcher:
    [​IMG]
    Secondly, select 'Add new':[​IMG]
    Next, you should be greeted with this:
    [​IMG]

    This guide is here to show you how to change your version, ignore any of the other things unless you know what you are doing.

    Click on the drop down box and simply select your Minecraft version:
    [​IMG]
    After you have done this, select the green 'Save' button and select 'News' at the top of the launcher.

    Last but not least, make sure you are on the correct Minecraft version. This can be done by viewing the 'Play button' or selecting the drop up arrow next to the play button and selecting a profile. Unfortunately with this new launcher, your profile does not change automatically, so you must select the profile that you just created by finding it as shown below.

    Aaaaand that is it guys! I hope this was as easy as it looks and that the images helped you through this updated guide for the new MC launcher.
