|Note:||When remixing, you should always give credit to the creator of the original project and follow the Community Guidelines.|

- Main article: Project Downloading
To download a project, find its page on the Scratch Website and look in the upper-right corner. There will be a link next to the words "Download this project!" Click that, do what it says if necessary, and wait while it is being downloaded. This can take a while. The larger the project (up to a size of 10MB), the longer it will take.
Once your project is downloaded, go and open it. Edit anything you wish (sprites, costumes, scripts and so on). Never re-upload a project without editing it; it is termed as Project Copying and is looked down upon. Copying can even result in a ban if repeated.
Share the project as if you would any other. Once the upload is done, you can view it online. Credit will automatically be given to the user who shared the project you remixed. However, you should give additional credit in the Project Notes as a kind gesture. A simple text like "Based on [...] by [...]" is enough.
Scratch 2.0 features a different way to remix. The user simply clicks the "See inside" button on the project page to open the project.
Seeing the code
Click on the button on the project page labeled "See inside". You should be brought to the project editor and the code the program contains.
Change the project as desired, such as changing costumes, or fixing bugs caused by errors in scripting. Modifications must be done to the projects before uploading. A remix without any modifications done is called Project Copying, and is not allowed on Scratch.
Save the remix by clicking on the yellow "remix" button on the top bar. Then, it should be replaced by the "Share" and "See Project Page" buttons. Press the "Share" button, and the project will be shared.
While credit will be automatically given, you can add additional credit in the Project Notes such as "By Username's Project 'Project name'"as a kind gesture, as noted above.
