HOW TO INSTALL MINECRAFT JAVA MAPS ON PC/MAC

Learning how to Install a minecraft java on PC/MAC might seem a little hard at first but it is actually a very simple process if you follow this short guide. This post is focused at Windows users, however it is the same process for most operating systems, only the path to the folder will be different.

Majority of minecraft maps that you can download will likely be archived within a .zip or .rar file while the folders and files contained in this archive must be extracted into your minecraft saves folder. To allow the minecraft to detect the map, you will need a file archiver program to do this, such as 7-Zip (Windows only) which is free.

If you have a Mac, the “Archive Utility” built into OS X will be able to open .zip files by right-clicking on the .zip and selecting “Open With > Archive Utility”, but you will need a program such as The Unarchiver for .rar files.
