The mod option has disappeared from the main menu screen in my son's Minecraft game. How do I access mods without the option on the main screen or is there a way to make it reappear?

    @Sarah Is your son using Forge for mods? If so, you must make sure that he selected the profile Forge has put in his profile dropdown.

  • You can say if there are mods installed by looking at the game version in main menu - left bottom corner. If there are mods, it will say how many and the version of Forge. Sep 3, 2015 at 10:26

If there is no mods button, that means Minecraft Forge is not installed or loaded. Forge is a tool that facilitates the use of mods in Minecraft, and is a requirement for many mods.

First, make sure you are launching the game from a profile with forge selected as the version. In the launcher, check if there is a profile with "forge" in the name in the dropdown at the bottom left corner.

If not, you'll have to install Minecraft Forge. Go to files.minecraftforge.net and download the installer for the recommended version. Run it, and it will automatically create a new profile in the launcher.
