    Yes way, and most of us have the app already. Bet you have it too as it's part of Win 10.

    Isn't it only the purchasers of the Sim through the Microsoft store that need the Xbox app and not the ones who purchased through Steam?

    No flight Sim installed until I get a new computer.

    Of course.
    Maybe because it's the Steam versión?

    A few days ago I went through the Xbox hoops to get my MSFS to update. Today I have found that MS have charged me an annual subscription to Xbox. £43.20! - for what??
    I do not have Xbox, and I do not want Xbox - so why the charge? My MSFS is computer based as it has been from the start.
    Microsoft, aide and abetted, by Asobo, has gone completely downhill in my opinion.
    Has anyone else been treated like this?

    Yes, maybe so. Just to be sure, with the MS Store version the Xbox App doesn't need to be open or running, just installed - have you uninstalled the Xbox App and your Steam version runs without it?

    Well no-one else has really, it's a default Windows 10 app so it's already installed with Windows 10 until you uninstall it.

    No problem! Microsoft can be sneaky with some of their apps...
