I'm new to Minecraft and I wanted to install a couple mods. I installed the Java files for them (both 1.14.4), along with Forge for 1.14.4, but my Minecraft folder on my computer doesn't have a "mods" folder I can put the installed mods into.
Its always a good idea to run Forge first without any mods. This will create the extra folders needed, including the mods folder.
