Find the Minecraft folder: Methods

You don’t have to search your entire system to find the Minecraft folder. There are two methods that will get you there quickly:

  • Use the Minecraft launcher to find the installation folder. To do this, open the launcher and switch to the Installations tab:
  • You will find all Minecraft installations on your system there. You will see a folder icon next to each installation. Click on this to open the Minecraft folder
  • Alternatively, simply use your system’s Explorer. On Windows, the Minecraft folder is usually located under C:\Users\username\AppData\roaming\.minecraft. Alternatively, open the Run function ([WINDOWS key] and [R]), enter %appdata%/.minecraft and confirm.
  • If you are using a Mac, you can find the Minecraft folder using the Go to function. Press and hold [ALT] to access the library. The Minecraft folder is located inside Application Support.
  • Linux users will find the Minecraft folder under home/user. The folder may not be displayed because it is hidden. In this case, the key combination [CTRL] and [h] will help.
