I want to add some shaders but when i run %appdata% there are no minecraft files. I can't even find where it is downloaded onto my computer. Please help me fix this issue.

    Most (if not all) shaders are built for java edition. Which shader are you looking to install?

I will tell you where are Minecraft files not how to install shaders.

  1. Windows-SSD (C-drive)
  2. Users
  3. Your Name
  4. Go to view and check Hidden items on the right.
  5. You will see app data. open it.
  6. Local
  7. Packages
  8. Microsoft.Minecraft and a string of numbers and letters
  9. LocalState
  10. Games
  11. com.mojang
  12. Done!


I hope this helps.


In 2021 it is impossible to add shaders on Minecraft
