Where are my Minecraft saves located? How do I load a downloaded map?

I’ve received a few questions about this so figured I would address them! Where are my world saves? Where do i put the world I downloaded? Fear not, its pretty easy and once you find the location.

I suggest making a shortcut to the saves folder on your desktop for easy access in the future! Once you download one, I guarantee it won’t be your last. Below you will find everything you need.

How to find Minecraft saves located?

First you will need to open your run command window (in Windows you can use the shortcut: Windows Key + R). Then copy and paste the code below:

To find your saved files:
~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves/
For Linux code would be:
If you are in Windows, then it would be:

This should be pretty easy but if it still was a little confusing for you, you can also get to the correct folder by following the next steps:

  1. Start Minecraft
  2. Click “Options”
  3. Choose “Resource Packs”
  4. Choose “Open resource pack folder”
  5. Go up a level (folder)
  6. Open the saves directory.
