Can't find the file location for Grand Theft Auto V

Recommended Posts


Hello, reader


I am having some trouble finding out how to find the file location for my recently installed Grand Theft Auto V. Whenever I seem to right-click the Grand Theft Auto V shortcut, it won't give me the option of "Open file location" like other games will. I have also noticed that the file type for the shortcut is an "Internet Shortcut (.url)". I also found out that the Grand Theft Auto V file doesn't even exist on my PC! It is as if the file was never put onto my computer and I have never gotten Grand Theft Auto V before. it wasn't as obvious then, you may already notice that I'm trying to install mods for singleplayer use only. I'm not sure if this was a stunt to protect hackers or whatnot, or I'm just not looking in the right area.


It would mean a lot if someone would get back to me as soon as possible as I am eager to play this game with what Mods have to offer.

If you got the free version via Epic, it’s in the Program Files/Epic Games folder

The game should install to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\GTAV unless you changed the install path

Your saves, config file, etc are in C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\RANDOM_NUMBER

User Music and Video edits are in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA V
