How to install Minecraft mods with Minecraft forge
Extract the mod file, if necessary, by right-clicking on the file or folder and selecting Extract. This new file will be saved in a new location under the same folder path
Copy the mod file by pressing Ctrl+C (You’ll know it’s the right mod file, as it will have a .jar extension)
Open Minecraft from your desktop or Start menu
Select the latest release
Find your Minecraft installation folder by clicking on the green arrow on the right side of the game directory. You should see program files for Minecraft
Open the Mods folder
Inside the Mods folder, click your mouse in any blank space and press Ctrl+V to paste that mod file you had copied earlier
Now that your new mod is installed, you can start playing it. Look for the name of the mod in your menu, and remember that it may not be the exact mod name you call it.
