1. Install the Mod Loader Forge
The first step to install mods in Minecraft is to install a Mod Loader, that is, a program that manages and runs the mods within the game. The most popular Mod Loader is by far the Forge, since most mods you find on the internet have this program as a requirement.

The download will start automatically. It is possible that a message will appear warning you about the risks of the file, but don't worry, as this is a standard message for any Java file.
