  1. Download a texture pack from the site of your choice. Majority of texture packs are in ZIP file format, but as long as it has the necessary files (Pack.txt), Minecraft will recognize a folder as a texture pack. If you create your own textures, you can ZIP them if you feel it is necessary. However, as of snapshot 12w23a, for as long as pack.txt exists, it will be recognized as a texture pack.
  2. Run Minecraft. If you already have Minecraft running, make sure you save and quit the world: you need to at least be in the main menu to continue.
  3. Click Texture Packs button. (If you do not see it, go to Options)
  4. Click Open Texture Pack Folder button; this will open the folder where Minecraft stores all texture packs. If nothing happens, you need to find the folder manually. Depending on your operating system it is:
  • Windows XP/Vista/7/8: %appdata%\.minecraft\resourcepacks
  • GNU/Linux: ~/.minecraft/resourcepacks (This folder may be hidden in the Home folder)
  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/resourcepacks (This folder may be hidden)
  1. You do not have to have Minecraft closed to place the texture pack in the opened folder.
  2. In a few seconds the texture pack will appear in Minecraft. Select it and click "Done". The texture pack is now applied, you may load your world and see the difference. If Minecraft did not update, simply exit and reopen the texture packs screen.
