This question already has an answer here:
having the same problem as many others seem to be having on here but i'm stuck at a point at which everyone else seems to find what they are looking for.
Trying to install forge for minecraft but as every guide says i've to make copies of all the game files which im trying to do but there is no minecraft folder when i go looking. I've tried the %appdata% search and it returns nothing.
I had a thought, is it becasue my kids who play minecraft don't play online, as in they don't have an xbox live account to sign in to to create saves from? Are they effectively playing as 'guests'? If so, is the only way to fix this to get them xbox live subscriptions? its the windows 10 edition we have, is it better to try and use the java edition?
