You can add a descriptor in [brackets] like that at the top of each of the.cfg files. You wont be able to see it without actually opening the file. Or You write a simple .cmd or .bat file in dos to swap in the file you want each time you start FSX. You will however have to have 17 differnt shortcuts on your desk. Let me know if need help doing this, i dont know your skill level, cheers, Mark

You could put a note in either the ref or check htm files, then you could just open the kneeboard.

The problem is that you wont be able to see which one is loaded without physically opening it, as no matter what you call your copy, if you make one, the file has to be called fsx.cfg when in use. You can look at the different ones in the microsoft flight simulator files folder, in documents, but when you swap one in, it just shows as fsx.cfg. The only way to know what folder is loaded or the contents of that file is to swap it manually as I said. Also dont forget when you change sliders, several settings get reset to default, another good reason to do it that way.
