What Is Forge?

Mod To Use Mods

Minecraft Forge

Forge is a mod that allows users to easily install and enable mods. It is highly compatible with the latest Minecraft Java Edition versions and is frequently being updated. Another thing is that you can easily change versions to play mods.

Alternative To Fabric

Fabric is another Minecraft mod that loads other Minecraft mods. You can also have Fabric on your Minecraft to increase your mod options. Unfortunately, some Fabric mods have no Forge equivalents and you may have to find alternatives to them.

How To Install Fabric

Only Works With Java Edition

Minecraft Java Edition

Forge is only compatible with the Java Edition of Minecraft. If you bought the Minecraft Bedrock Edition (Windows 10), you won't be able to use its features to install mods.
