How do i find the MSFS executable?

  1. Open Task Manager
  2. Go in the Details section
  3. Find/Search for FlightSimulator.exe
  4. Right-click to open the contextual menu
  5. Click on Open file location
    • If nothing happens when you click Open file location, you have an legacy (encrypted) install of MSFS and the exe file is not accessible.
