I keep running into the error of the Optifine file downloading to my desktop as a jar file and when I try to open it, it opens a Notepad full of coded code. Here are a few screenshots:
The actual installer is nowhere on my computer and this is really bothering me.
If you are using Forge, you don't need to install Optifine as a .jar file. Just copy into the mods folder like other mods.
Good rule of thumb: don't click to open .jar files.
