Saving a new livery in Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

When I had Windows 7, it was easy to cut and paste a new livery into the aircraft config.  You just hit SAVE and it was there.  It seems you can't do that in Windows 10.  I can still cut and paste, but when I go to save it takes me to a screen that won't allow me to just save the new livery.

 

I really depend on this to add variety to my aircraft repertoire.  Please let me know the trick to saving a new livery to an aircraft config in Windows 10.

It IS installed in C:\Program Files (x86).  Then Microsoft Games, Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

PROBLEM SOLVED.   Thanks for trying to help.  I called by computer builder, Jetline Systems, and as always, they have lifetime support for anything associated with their computers.  Ken, the technician there discovered that when I upgraded to Windows 10, my PERMISSIONS didn't all come over so there was an "ownership" problem with me being able to write to a program.

 

Wow...I would have never guessed that.

That was my initial guess as well, hence my question. Windows is extremely protective of C:\Program Files(x86) and it is actually well known that installing FSX there is kind of a no-no due to issues with write permissions.

I prefer to install any program I can outside of the Program Files folder, especially with Windows Vista or later OS.

There is an small trick to take ownership on every folder, using a context menu option. Just google Take Ownership Windows 10. I've been using it for years.


Cheers :)
