I have searched in %appdata%, pulling up the list of files there, but there is no file labelled .minecraft. Searching %appdata%\.minecraft returns "no results found".

I also opened Minecraft to click on the resources button and could not locate that either.

    You're not using the XBox version on a computer. I don't know what you're using, but definitely not that. Apr 4 '18 at 11:53

    You need to specify if you are referring to Minecraft : Java Edition, or Minecraft : Windows 10 Edition. A quick way to check... did you use the Microsoft store to buy Minecraft?

  • @galacticninja Just to keep myself informed: why did you edit this question? Is improving closed questions still beneficial?

    @Joachim I saw this question in the reopen votes review queue. I decided to edit it from there (which also casts a reopen vote). Yes, it is beneficial to improve closed questions to get their quality up for reopening. Jul 13 '19 at 18:39

The Bedrock (Windows Store/Windows 10) version of Minecraft folder is not %appdata%/.minecraft like the Java version.

For the Win 10 version you need to go to:


See the official Mojang help for more info.

  • I am sure I am using Bedrock edition, But there is no Packages folder inside %AppData%. Nov 19 '21 at 10:46
  • @GediminasJeremiahGudelis it is in %LocalAppData%

  • I have spotted my mistake, thanks :) Nov 21 '21 at 13:05

Found mine in c:\users[my_user]\AppData\Roaming.minecraft\saves.
I am using the Java edition, on Windows 10 (version 1909).

    But the question is for Bedrock Edition. How does a Java Edition answer help for a question about Bedrock Edition? Aug 18 '20 at 1:53
  • @ExpertCoder14 : It's not obvious that "Minecraft for Windows 10" is the Bedrock edition, but then there's also "Minecraft: Java Edition," which runs on Win 10, but doesn't note the OS in the title. It's confusing, so Joachim was understandably confused.

  • @EJMak The question’s tags clearly state that the asker is on Bedrock Edition. Also note that Joachim was the last editor of the post, not the original poster of the answer. The original poster is Vince LeAudet, read the usercards more carefully. Oct 23 '20 at 23:06
