    Default Community Folder Question

    If I completely empty my Community Folder, will I still have all of the World Updates and all Marketplace purchased items in the basic game? In other words, will I have MS2020 just without third party add-ons? Thanks a lot!

    I believe so.

    You don't need to physically empty it. Simply renaming the entire folder to ANYTHING other then "Community" has the same effect. MSFS will create a new Community folder to which you can move anything over to make it active or when ready to reactivate everything, delete the new folder and rename back to Community.

    Better yet, use Addon Linker, which places only links to files in Community and is a tremendously useful addon -- and free!
