You don't need to go through the folders, from the start menu just copy and paste the following into the "search" bar:

%appdata%\.minecraft\

To view hidden files, go to Organize and down to Folder and search Options. Click on the View tab and under "Hidden files and Folders", click the "Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives" radio.

Search for My Mods the tag "darkm"

You probably haven't done this, but, if you have the new launcher downloaded, then you can launch that, and go in to options, and it will show you the location. It also functions as a link, hooray!

Just to let everyone here know, even the people helping :bookshelf:

There is no need to give direct folder path. Minecraft by default uses environment variables to get to it's install location. That variable is %appdata%\.minecraft\   Because it uses environment variables it does not matter what OS you are using going to %appdata%\.minecraft will always bring you to the minecraft installation.

Another option is to use the NEW launcher. Click options and it has a little link that says "Game location on disk" clicking that will bring you to the folder.
