Minecraft is famous for how many mods it has, and how easy they are to install. These mods can be practical – like creating a new item – or they can add fun thematic elements to your game, such as new game modes.

To install these mods, you’ll need to use a free add-on called Minecraft Forge. This will let you customize Minecraft: Java Edition with mods.

Quick tip: Minecraft Forge can’t be used to add mods to Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. You’ll need to be playing the „Java” version.

Here’s how to install Minecraft Forge, and use it to install mods.

How to download Minecraft Forge

1. Go to the Minecraft Forge download page.

Quick tip: Minecraft Forge requires Java, so install that before beginning the download.

2. You’ll see two download links: Latest and Recommended. Pick Recommended, as it has less bugs. Use the chart under Minecraft Version on the left to ensure you’re downloading the version of Forge that corresponds with your current version of Minecraft and the mods you’re running.

Go for the recommended download to avoid potential bugs in the latest version.

3. Once you click the installer link, you’ll be shown an ad. Wait a few seconds, and then click Skip in the top-right corner. Once you click it, the download will start.

Click „Skip” if you see an ad-sponsored loading screen when downloading Minecraft Forge.

4. Open the Forge installer, and give the app the necessary privacy and access permissions when requested. If you’re on a Mac, you might need to go into your computer’s Security & Privacy settings to give it permission to open.

5. In the window that appears, select Install Client and click OK.

Click OK after agreeing to install the client.

6. Forge will connect to the internet and download all of its data. Once it’s done, a pop-up message will indicate Minecraft Forge has been successfully installed. Click OK to continue.

Forge, and its version number, as seen in the Minecraft Launcher after installation.

9. In the options that appear, click and select Forge.

Click the Forge icon in the bottom left of the launcher.

10. Now press Play.

Quick tip: A pop-up message may appear asking the user to accept that the version has been modified and may not support the latest player safety features. This is standard and you should approve it.

11. After the game has loaded, check that the Mods option has appeared. This signals that you’ve installed Minecraft Forge successfully.

Click Mods to access your Mods menu.

How to add a mod to Minecraft

Forge won’t come with mods built into it, so you’ll need to find them yourself. You can find all sorts of Minecraft mods through Google, and websites like

There are thousands of „Minecraft” mods, with new ones being added each day.

Once you’ve found one that’s appealing, save the file to your newly-created Forge mods folder.

The address on your PC will be: C:Users[your username]AppDataRoaming.minecraftmodsOn a Mac, it’ll be: [your computer’s name] > Macintosh HD > Users > [your username] > Library > Application Support > minecraft > mods

In place of [your username], insert the name of the account you’re using on your computer.

You can search for „Mods” if you are having trouble locating your Minecraft Mods folder.

Once you’ve done that, you can check that the mod is enabled by clicking the „Mods” tab on the Minecraft main menu (see above), then confirming that the mod is listed in the left column beneath the Minecraft version you’re running.

The Zombie Extreme mod gives you „Minecraft,” but with extra powerful zombies.
