3. Press the button "Save all information" as shown below. Please take note of where you are saving the file to. (By default it should be Desktop)

4. Open the file from where you saved it to, as seen here:

5. Please copy ALL of the text (right click on any empty space, press "select all", right click again, press "copy") in this file and paste it onto a text sharing website, such as Ubuntu Paste.

First, paste the text that you copied from the file into the text area in the center of the page at Ubuntu Paste. The "Poster" field will be your Minecraft Username.

Then, press the "Paste!" option and it will redirect you to a URL with all the text you pasted. The URL looks like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12345678/

Copy the URL as seen in the image below and read on.
