How to install Minecraft Forge


Here’s how to install Minecraft Forge and manage your mods. It’s pretty simple to set up and once you get started, you’ll have one place to keep track of all your mods, whether that’s tweaking your interface or spicing up your exploration.

Mods for Minecraft are not in short supply, so when it comes to managing the Forge mods you’re using in Mojang’s sandbox game, the sheer volume of mods can be a tad overwhelming. Minecraft Forge only works for the Java Edition, so if you’re not living your best modding life on the original PC version, then there’s plenty of fun to be had exploring Minecraft PE seeds to keep your busy for hours.

When approaching Minecraft Forge for the first time, it can be a little daunting. But don’t fret, we’ve created an easy step-by-step guide to installing Forge for Minecraft so you can quickly and seamlessly alter your Minecraft experience.
