How to Add a Mod to the Minecraft Mods Folder


One of the most common questions I get is how to add a mod to the mods folder for Minecraft. The most common issue is that the viewer does not have Forge installed, and does not have a mods folder. But every now and then, people need help finding the folder altogether. And that makes sense, since Minecraft placed the mods folder in the most inconvenient location possible. So, how do you find it?

Once you have downloaded the mod of your choice, you need to add it to Forge. Thankfully, this is a relatively simple process. The mods should currently be in your downloads folder. Let’s move on to bringing them into Minecraft. First press the Windows Key + R, and then type “%appdata%\.minecraft.”

This should bring you to your .minecraft folder. Look for a subfolder named “mods.” If you do not have this folder, please create it now. Double click on this folder, and then drag your mod files in from the Downloads folder. You have successfully installed a mod for Hypixel Skyblock. See? It’s not so hard to add the mod of your choice to the mods folder.
