Where is mods folder for sims 4 in windows 10??

★★★★ Novice

I recently got a new laptop and downloaded Windows 10 on it. I downloaded Sims 4, (I had played it before on other laptops) and I wanted to put custom content in my game, like always. But I searched and I couldn't find the mods folder anywhere in the Electronic Arts/The Sims 4. I also couldn't find the saves folder either. Does anybody else have this problem, know anything about it, know how to help??

You need to start the game at least once for the folder to be created

 

If you want to play with your old saves, you'll need to manually move them over from your old computer

I'm not sure whether you're still having the problem but I not long ago had the problem too, I do everything that everyone stated above but nothing even played for 5 minutes (probably longer) but I think I might of found a way you can find it, Not sure whether it'll work but... 

 

 

 

Click on This PC, then Click on your C Drive, which'll look like this -- Acer ( C : ) (Without spaces) -- If you've clicked on it, then you'll see a bunch of folders, Some with program files, etc.. Click on the folder that says 'Users' then once you've done that, Click on the one folder that has your PC's name on it, Like what you've named your PC, For example mine's -- Shyanne -- As that's my name, I know original, but once you've done that then you'll see all the same folders you have at the side but for some strange reason are completely different, click on documents after the PC's named folder, once you've also done that you'll be directed to some more folders, Click on Electronic Arts then Sims 4 then Mods. 

 

Hopefully this helped I do really suck at explaining stuff, I also tend to babble, If you understand anything from above then awesome.

 

If there's nothing there still then I have no absolute clue, I do hope you get it solved quick though as I know it's horrible specially when you'd like to play the game.

I do not know what you mean by "it has not been fixed"? Oops

This is how the game works, nothing is wrong, why would they fix it, and what would the fix be? Standard smile
