This article is about how to install a resource pack. For what a resource pack is, see Resource Pack.

These tutorials are meant to help you use resource packs in Minecraft. Resource packs allow players to customize textures, music, sounds, language files, end credits, splashes, and fonts but do not change the actual gameplay.

Any platform

  1. Download a resource pack, you should get a .zip file
  2. Open the folder to which you downloaded the file
  3. Copy the .zip file
  4. Open Minecraft
  5. In Minecraft, click on "Options", then "Resource Packs"
  6. Choose "Open resource pack folder"
  7. Paste the file into the resource folder in Minecraft
  8. Go back to Minecraft, the resource pack should now be listed (if not listed then go to the main menu by pressing Esc and repeat step 5) and you can activate it by choosing it and hitting "Done". The game will now reload itself.
