Even after all these years, Minecraft is still going strong. While the base version of the game is great and has had some fantastic DLC released. If you are a PC Minecraft player, mods are really what this game is all about. If you have a lot of mods for Minecraft then you need Minecraft Forge to help you keep them all organized.

The Program Review
I would not even know where to start when it comes to talking about the actual mods. From new biomes, themes, buildings, skins, and so on, if you can think of it, chances are someone has made a mod for it. The thing is, there are so many mods, that it can be hard to keep track of them all.
With Minecraft Forge, you have a very easy-to-use method for keeping your mods organized so that they are always on hand when you want to use them. It is completely free to use and it is always being updated so that it can be used with the current version of Minecraft. As I write this on the site it is available for Minecraft version 1.1 all the way up to 1.16.5.
Once you have downloaded Minecraft Forge, you can easily select it as a profile on your Minecraft launcher. This will then give you a button that will show you all of the mods you currently have. Each time you download a new mod, it will be added to this list. You select the mods you want and launch the game and that is it.
You can select the mods folder from this list as well and this allows you to put any new mods you have downloaded here. The reason you would do this is so that they are always listed in your mods folder. If you do not do this, you will have to manually search for it before you can use it.
It is important to note that Minecraft Forge does not come with any mods installed. Thankfully there are a ton of sites that deal with Minecraft mods and a quick Google search will help you out. So, while this is very, very easy to use, you do have to do a bit of work yourself to get this thing actually usable.
Sure, it is awesome that Minecraft has done tie-ins with all kinds of stuff, most recently Sonic the Hedgehog. However, once you have played Minecraft with mods, there is no going back. From extra graphical effects, cool-looking biomes, and new game modes. There really is no end to the mods that are available.
