How to Transfer Minecraft World to Another Computer

Introduction: How to Transfer Minecraft World to Another Computer

Ever wanted to copy your minecraft world? Well, this instructable will show you that. I will be showing how to do this on a windows PC. (I am moving from windows 7 desktop to windows 10 laptop). This should work with any Windows PC, but different steps must be taken when using Apple or Linux computers.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

-2 Computers (or 2 different users on the same PC)

-an USB thumb drive

Step 2: Find World

1st, open the start menu and search %appdata%

Then, open the roaming folder. (on Windows 10 it may just be called %appdata% folder)

3rd, open .minecraft folder.

Finally, open saves folder.

Step 3: Copy World

Grab the folder with the name of the world you want to copy, and drag it over to your USB thumb drive. Note: if you renamed your world at any time, the folder most likely has the old name.

Step 4: Move World

Safely remove USB drive and insert into computer #2. Then, follow the directions in Step #2 to get to the "saves" folder. Copy the world folder from your USB stick to the saves folder and exit out of everything.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Open minecraft and enjoy playing your old world on your new PC!

    same folders on linux in .minecraft ... the leading . hides the folder so from the terminal command use "ls -la" to find it. mac's should have the same layout but it's been a few years since I been on mac.

    If you dont have a usb drive, you can use google drive.

    It's good to know so you don't lose all your stuff :)
