I apologize if this is a duplicate question (please provide me a link if there is an answer already out there). I cannot find my saves for minecraft.

  1. One post says to look here "C:\Users{myname}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe" I do not have a Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder
  2. Another post says look for saves folder in the installation folder. For me that is C:\games\minecraft. There is no saves folder here.
  3. Another post says in App data. for me that's C:\Users{myname}\AppData\Local.minecraft. There is no .minecraft folder here.
  4. I did find this folder. C:\Users{myname}\AppData\Roaming.minecraft but there's no worlds here.

I'm totally lost. I have 4 worlds created. My changes to the worlds are saved.

Where are my worlds saved? Btw, I'm running windows 10.

  • @Virusbomb Not sure how its a duplicate. as I stated in #3 I do not have %APPDATA%\.minecraft\ folder. Html rendering doesnt seem like slash + dot. – tatmanblue Feb 8 '18 at 16:20
  • @Nolonar While the question may be slightly different the answer is applicable to all platforms. It has windows mentioned specifically. – Virusbomb Feb 8 '18 at 16:21
  • @Virusbomb. I noticed afterwards, that's why I deleted my comment. – Nolonar Feb 8 '18 at 16:22
  • @tatmanblue There is an alternate solution in the top answer on that question that shows another way of finding the folder. – Virusbomb Feb 8 '18 at 16:23
  • According to the official site, it should be under %appdata%\.minecraft If there is no such folder, you might want to contact support. – Nolonar Feb 8 '18 at 16:23

Well I found it. I followed the link @Virusbomb shared.

I could not find the menu choice "Mods and Texture Packs". I did not have this menu on the launcher screen nor the main game screen. Not sure whats up with that. (After I found a way to find my folders, I did find navigating "options | resource packs" I had a button that would open the resource folder which is the same thing, I think)

Anyways, here's how I found my saves.

I chose my world, clicked edit. That gave me a choice to "open folder".

This put me in "D:\documents\public\minecraft worlds\saves{myworld}"

I do not know how I configured minecraft to use that folder. However, that is where my worlds are saved.

Thnx Matt
