How do I convert a zip file into an mcworld?

    Hi there Mustafa Akhtar. Minecraft Java and Minecraft Bedrock worlds are not compatible with Minecraft: Education Edition.

    We do have steps on creating your own .mcworld file from the folders on your Windows or Mac device though.

    World files are stored in the following directory on your device:

    PC: C:\Users\(USERNAME)\AppData\Roaming\Minecraft Education Edition\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds

    MacOS: Look in HD > Users > <user name> > Library > Application support > Minecraftpe > Games > com.mojang

    1. Find the world directory you'd like to transfer. Each world resides in a directory that has a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols as its name.

    2. Enter that directory and select all the files and folders.

    3. Archive these files and folders into a single .zip file. This must be a .zip file, as .rar or .7z will not be recognized by the app.

    4. Change the zip file extension from .zip to .mcworld


  • I have the same problem, but with mods! It says there's no manifest, yet there is. Oh, and i can actually import worlds into minecraft ed.

    Hey there Braidyn,

    Minecraft Education does not offer mod support due to the unpredictability of them and chance for world corruption. 

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for understanding.
