Simple copy minicart.phtml from following


and put in


Flush your cache and check.

  • figure out the structure, Checkout is a Magento module it will be override like as theme override(Magento_Theme): Core: vendor\magento\module-theme\view\frontend` Override: <vendor-name>\<theme-name>\Magento_Theme` So Checkout(Magento_Checkout): Core: vendor\magento\module-checkout\view\frontend` Override: <vendor-name>\<theme-name>\Magento_Checkout` minicart.phtml will be placed accordingly: <magento-root>/app/design/frontend/<vendor-name>/<theme-name>/Magento_Checkout/templates/cart/minicart.phtml So like this method any modules template can be override and customize.

The only thing that worked was manually clearing the contents of pub/static/ but make sure that you don't delete the .htaccess file inside pub/static/ folder

Some of the things that I tried and didn't work

  1. Adding a mapping in requirejs-config.js (Both in the code and design folders)

    "map": {
        "*": {
            'Magento_Checkout/template/minicart/content.html': 'Magento_Theme/template/minicart/content.html'
  2. bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f --theme Vendor/module en_GB en_US
