- Datapacks are a thing in Minecraft PC 1.13 or higher that enables the ability of custom advancements,functions,structures,loot tables and more without the need to install a mod of any kind. Some datapacks can be used along side mods as "addons" for the mods.
- How to install datapacks: ( Provided that your language is English (US) )
+ First, open your Minecraft game
+ Enter "Singleplayer"
+ Right-click once on the world that you wanted to install the datapack
+ There should be a row of buttons to press. Press on the "Open World Folder" button (the second one)
+ You should now be redirected to your world folder. Open the "datapacks" folder and install the datapack folder there.
+ When it is done, go back to Minecraft, and enter the world that you wanted to install the datapack.
+ The datapack should now be installed into your world. If you want to make sure that it is installed, use /datapack list. If there is more than one datapack in the list then your datapack has been installed.
- I hope that this tutorial helps you guys. If you want to, you can try installing my datapacks. I will be making more in the future. Thank you for your time.

Everyone who is confused, just select a world you want to use the datapack in, select "edit" and youll find the "open world folder" option.

Click on the world you want to add the datapack to. Then click "Edit". You should then see "Open World Folder" in the row of buttons in the edit menu.

I'm new to Minecraft and have followed your instructions.
When I right click on my world, nothing happens. There is an icon to the right of my world that opens up to world settings, add-ons, etc. It doesn't let me add any data packs that is not from the in game store.
Any ideas? I'll keep working at it.
