  • I am not responsible for anything that happens to your Minecraft file.
  • Back up your saves. 
  • Follow the instructions that come with the texture pack if there is any.

Windows

  1. Find a texture pack you want to install.
  2. For XP users, go to your start menu, then run. For Vista / 7, go to start and type it in the search box. Type "%appdata%" (without the quotations) and hit enter. This will load up your Application Data. How to Install Minecraft Texture Packs
  3. Double click ".minecraft". How to Install Minecraft Texture Packs
  4. Double click "texturepacks". How to Install Minecraft Texture Packs
  5. Going back to the .zip file you downloaded (the texture pack) drag this into the folder. And you're done! It's that simple. As with any OS, load Minecraft, then go to "Mods and Texture Packs". Then select the texture pack you just installed.
