Install Optifine and Shaders for Minecraft 1.20.1

In this post, you will learn how to install Optifine 1.20.1 for Minecraft! To get started, open up your Minecraft Launcher, and select the Latest Release, or any other version you want to install Optifine for. Make sure to launch Minecraft on that version once, before trying to install Optifine 1.20, or it might not work.

Once you’ve made it to the main menu of Minecraft, click Quit Game. Now it is time to download Optifine 1.20.1 from the official Optifine website, which is listed down below.

Warning with Optifine Download

Now you may see a warning with the download, stating that .jar-files may be harmful to your PC. If you’ve used the link listed above, you can just click Keep. The file should have a Java icon, but for many people it doesn’t have that.

If the Optifine 1.20.1 installer doesn’t open with Java, try downloading Jarfix, execute that program and see if it fixes anything. If it tells you to go download Java, because it couldn’t find Java on your PC, use the second link down below to

Download Shaders for Minecraft 1.20.1

Sildur’s Enhanced Default download:

Once you’ve downloaded the shaders, do NOT unzip or unpack the file. Navigate to your search bar and type in %appdata%, and click the folder that appears, or hit Enter on your keyboard. Among all the folders you see should be a folder called .minecraft. Click this folder. If this is your first time installing shaderpacks, you want to right-click and create a new folder called shaderpacks, all lower case. If you already have this folder, just add the Sildur’s Vibrant Lite shaders or any other shaderpack you like to it.

You’re all set! Open up your Minecraft Launcher, make sure it selects the Optifine 1.20.1 profile, which it should be on by default. Now click Play and wait for the game to launch. Once you’re on the main menu, navigate to Options > Video Settings and click ‘Shaders’. Over here, find the pack you just added, and just click its name. This will load it and apply it to Minecraft.

That’s it, you’re done! Hop into a world or server and enjoy the beauty of your brand new shaderpack!
