Finding your Community Folder

Postby pete » Mon Oct 26, 2020 4:02 am

(This may have been posted already but here it is from me. )

Adding new scenery and aircraft is easy, provided you know where your Community folder is located.
Downloaded files are simply unzipped then drop the folder into your Community folder

Here is a quick description:

Default installations.

Microsoft Store version

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_RANDOM\LocalCache\Packages\Community

Steam version

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community

If you installed MSFS in a location of your choice you may find it here

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community
Think global. It's the world we live in

This is why I installed directly to my C drive and called the folder FS2020. In there I have the sim folder and the community folder. I can find everything in seconds. I never understand why games / sims / programs are always buried so deeply within the windows folder structure. I always do this and have never had a problem running a program.

1. Captain, if the problem is not entered into the technical logbook.........then the aircraft does not have a problem.
2. And, if you have time to write the fault on a napkin and attach to it to the yoke.........you have time to write it in the tech log....see point 1.
