Transferring Minecraft: Java Edition to Another Computer

Please be cautious with moving or modifying your save files. We advise that you make a backup before you perform any actions in this folder. You can back up your files by copying them and storing them in another folder or on a USB drive. 

Start by finding your saves folder. You can find all Minecraft folders, including the saves folder, by going into the game launcher: 

  1. Open the Minecraft launcher and log in. 
  2. Select Launch options, and then select the launcher configuration you are running (the default is set to Latest release).  
  3. Locate the Game directory selection and select the little green arrow to the right of it. A new window will open containing your Minecraft folder. When you open the saves folder you will see all your saved worlds in different folders. 
  4. Place the world folder(s) that you want to transfer onto a portable storage device, file-sharing software, or cloud computing service. 
  5. After the files are ready to be transferred, place them in the new computer's saves folder and they will be available in your list of single-player worlds.
