How to remove mods from FO

Don't like a feature or having a mod conflict? Easiest way to resolve it is to disable the mod. For resource pack-related issues, see this page.
Notes:
  • You can also delete the mod(s), but that will make it harder to use them later, unless you remember the mod's name exactly.
  • Don't disable anything that says "API", other mods need it to work.

Mod Menu

  1. 1.
    With the game open, click Mods
  2. 2.
    Scroll down to the specific mod you want to disable, note the third row with the ⚒️ (tools) or ✏️ (pencil) icon
    • If the icon is blue and the text mentions "Toggle mod", click the config button
      config
      and find the setting that disables the mod
    • If the icon is blue and the text says something else, click the config button
      config
      and see if you can disable the specific feature you need
    • If the icon is gray and there is no config button, or you know you added the mod yourself, follow your launcher-specific instructions below
    • If you don't see any icons and you didn't add the mod yourself, you don't have the Mod Menu Helper resource pack enabled for some reason.

MultiMC (auto-update)

There is currently no easy way because the tool downloads missing mods back on launch. There are script workarounds though, tutorials written here.
Consider switching to Prism Launcher instead, which also has a seamless modpack updater.

    Open Minecraft Launcher, click on Installations

    Click the folder icon on the profile you've created for the pack (could be named Fabric)

    Rename the specific mod from "modname.jar" to "modname.jar.disabled"
    • Don't see ".jar" at the end of the name? See this page for help.
    • Rename ".jar.disabled" back to ".jar" to use the mod again.
