I've been trying for the past two days now with the help of my friend to install mods ranging from ease of life mods such as maps, to advanced shaders and cannot seem to get anything to work. I've downloaded forge for said mods, but I can't get any further from this step, if I get can any help such as a step by step guide it would be greatly appreciated, I watched like 20 YouTube videos and I can't get anything to work thx.
Adding on to what majesty said, the Forge "installer" that you downloaded simply made a profile in your Minecraft launcher named "Forge." If you look at the version box in your screenshot, you're playing "latest release (1.14.2)" which is just vanilla Minecraft. Forge for 1.14.2 isn't out yet.
