    Re: Help Cant Find FSX config

    Nico,

    Has it.

    However, can I suggest two things. First, after you find your FSX.cfg file make a shortcut to it and place that on your desktop since you'll go to this file a lot. Second, if you have any icon on your desktop or in the the programs' list, you can right mouse click on the icon (either location) and then select the "Find Target" button. This will take you to that icon (file's) folder location. So, no matter where it's at, you wont have to hunt, you'll be taken right to it...

    As above its in there when you open the fsx folder go to top left organize tab click folder and search options then the view tab and place a green bullet in show hidden files and folders click ok and then go to the fsx folder and the fsxcfg.txt file should be there.
