What is PROPERTIES file?

A PROPERTIES file (Minecraft Properties File) stores the game's properties and allows users to change them without entering the game again. A PROPERTIES file is used for managing user settings like graphics settings, gameplay preferences, game mode, and difficulty level. It can also configure server options such as server name and max players.

Additional information

You will typically only come across the PROPERTIES file if you want to modify a multiplayer server's configuration. After making changes, restarting the server is necessary for the changes to be applied.

Since a PROPERTIES file is text-based, you can open it using a text editor or the app supporting the format.
