Folder Structure Doesn't appear


Recommended Posts

I use Windows 10 and I downloaded the latest version of Forge (1.12.2 - I was then told all I needed to do for using Mods in Minecraft was the find the Mod and add the files to the \minecraft file structure Forge created. Problem is, the structure it says it has doesn't exist when I manually try to navigate to it. See screenshot below. When I do a file search for "Forge" it shows that this file is in C:\Users\Noel\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft... But when I pop open Explorer to get there, there is no "AppData" anywhere to be found. I can get to C:\Users\Noel but then that's it. No searching can turn anything up. 

I'd really like to use some Mods but I'm stumped. Any help would be super appreciated. Sorry for what I'm sure is a pretty rookie question!

go to \%AppData% not \AppData

AppData is a hidden system directory that is used to store program data files.


You can get to your Mods folder by opening minecraft and using to to open your Resource Packs folder, then going up a folder. In that folder there should be an empty folder named Mods. Create a desktop shortcut to it, whatever you like - your mods go here

AppData is a hidden folder by default. Just typing in the address manually will bring you there, and as Cadiboo said, you can open it in game through the resource packs menu.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
