Outdated
The contents of this page no longer applies to the current version of Minecraft.

These tutorials are meant to help you use texture packs in Minecraft. Texture Packs change the look of Minecraft so that blocks look different, items look different, mobs look different, etc. but they do not change the actual game play.

  1. Download a texture pack, you should get a .zip file
  2. Open the folder, in which you downloaded the file
  3. Copy the .zip file
  4. Open .minecraft
  5. Click on "Texture Packs"
  6. Choose "Open texture pack folder". This opens a Windows Explorer window.
