Thread: MSFS Icon on Desktop

  1. #1

    Default MSFS Icon on Desktop

    In order to start MSFS I must first click the Micro Soft button on my keyboard, open my library, scroll down to the version of MSFS I downloaded and open it. I would appreciate an MSFS icon on my desktop that would do all that for me. Can someone walk me thru exactly how that is done?

    You can create a shortcut to the FlightSimulator.exe file like this:

    Type FlightSimulator.exe into the search window on your taskbar.

    In the options list on the right hand side, select "Open file location".

    Right-click on FlightSimulator.exe and select "Create shortcut".

    Move the new "FlightSimulator.exe - Shortcut" file to your desktop.

    You need to be able to see hidden files and folders.

    I can open my "Microsoft Flight Simulator" folder, then "Contents", find a file named "Flight Simulator" (it's an application, not an exe), right-click on the file and select "create shortcut". The new file will be displayed just above the Flight Simulator file. Click and drag the shortcut to your desktop.
