Want to play on PC not on XBOX

Recommended Posts

I have pre-purchased the MSFS2020 Premier edition.  Now that is released (and already installed on my PC), when I open the app it opens in "XBOX" mode.  In no longer own XBOX...want to play MSFS on my PC where it is installed.  How do I get rid of the XBOX stuff?  Thank you.  Also, does anyone know where the MSFS2020 app is installed on my PC?  Can't seem to find it's location.  Considering uninstalling and reinstalling to get rid of XBOX prompting.  Thank you, again.  (Starting to regret already purchasing this sim.)

1. I imagine you are trolling, as some of the r/flightsim guys seem to think that asking this specific question here will trigger avsim users. 

2. On the off chance you’re serious - 😳 - xbox games for windows is the brand under which this PC game is released.

KodiakPorsche (isn't that what the 959 is alluding to?) - to find where the sim is on your PC, listing the drive sorted by "date modified" should show you the latest files and hence give you a clue to where it is stored... assuming you didn't take a note of the install location of the sim when you were downloading it (installers usually tell you these things.....)

I don't have MSFS I only have FSX:SE and yet I knew it was going to install on my F drive because that's where I told it to! :wink:
