How to install Optifine
OptiFine allows Minecraft to run shaders.
Before you begin:

Important: The Optifine version must match the Minecraft version you intend to use
- Visit optifine.net and download the latest version that matches the Minecraft version you intend to use.
- Close both Minecraft and its launcher (if running).
- Launch the file you just downloaded (Java has to be installed in order to do that), change the Minecraft directory (if needed) and click Install.
- Once you see the message OptiFine is successfully installed, click OK.
To use the version of the game with Optifine installed, select it from the version menu in the launcher.
