I can only speak for PC - in that case you need to "run" (In windows 7 it's integrated in the search function when pressing the windows button) and type in %appdata% the folder will be named ".minecraft"

Another option is to start Minecraft, Click on "Texture Packs" then on "Open texture pack folder".
Windows will open the folder named "texturepacks". Go up one folder and you are in the ".minecraft" folder.

Close down Minecraft before making any mods (and do backups of your "bin" and "saves" folders before any changes are made).

For convenience I've made a shortcut on my desktop for the .minecraft" folder.  :)

And yes it has been covered before.

Hejgaard and Stepnahalf already said how to you find the .minecrat/saves folder.

After you find it, download the zip of the word save and unzip it, by using the option "Extract here". Copy the folder you get from the unzipping and paste it on the .minecraft/saves folder. Do all this with your minecraft closed. Open minecraft when you're done and the world will appear on your singleplayer worlds.

That's very strange. Hm.
Try downloading Minecraft again.

That is not possible :P
If your minecraft is running properly (i mean you can create new worlds, play on existing ones etc) you have a minecraft folder. What you have on the desktop is just the launcher. The first 2 posts here explain 2 ways on how you can find that folder!

Try also see this video of paul on how to find you minecraft folder, it may be better see than just explaining by words.

If he doesn't have a minecraft folder, the launcher will download the latest version of minecraft automatically for him after login with all the files needed.

This is just a heads up for Mac users having this same problem, if you want to find your minecraft folder, it should be in Users/YourUsername/Library/Application Support/minecraft :)

Yes, but this is really odd.

oldman, can you post your operating system etc. here?
Like this:

Windows 7 Home Premium
intel core i5 inside

etc.

Download Minecraft again and when it's opened, go to OPTIONS then to FORCE UPDATE.
Then log on.

Hope this helped.

maybe the folder is hidden, which is strange since it most likely shouldn't.
The appdata folder might be hidden though.
if you want to know how to unhide it, you can use this site if you want: http://www.sevenforu...-show-hide.html

If you needs to make mods or anything on a Mac you need to use terminal and follow these steps.
  • 1. Type in (without quotes) “cd ~” Enter – (Explanation: Browse to User Root folder)
  • Type in (without quotes) “mkdir mctmp” Enter – (Explanation: Make a directory name “mctmp”)
  • Type in (without quotes) “cd mctmp” Enter – (Explanation: Go to into mctpmp folder)
  • Type in (without quotes) “jar xf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar” Enter – (Explanation: Get Minecraft.jar and extract it to mctmp folder)
  • In Finder, copy all the files and folders into mctmp directory that you have created in by Terminal command.
  • Back to Terminall app, type in “rm META-INF/MOJANG_C.*” (Explanation: Delete META-INF/MOJANG_C.* file)
  • Then type “jar uf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./” – (Explanation: Compress everything and put back to minecraft.jar)
  • And “./ cd .. rm -rf mctmp” – (Explanation: Delete mctmp folder
Unless you do this you cannot find the folder to edit.
Life is a story,
It is full of Plot Twists,
And unexpected events.
But if we learn to love it, and love to work,
It can become the most enjoyable experience.
