Windows 10 has a built-in FPS counter in the Xbox Game Bar app. To use the FPS counter over your game, there are a few one-time steps you might need to take.
Important! You’ll need Xbox Game Bar version 3.34.11002.0 or later to use the FPS counter.
- Press Windows logo key Win + G to open Game Bar, then select Widget menu > Performance.
- Choose the FPS tab, then press Request access.
- Follow the prompts, then restart your PC for the changes to take effect.
When you launch a game, the FPS counter will be ready and waiting in Xbox Game Bar.
- Check Windows 10 for updates. If any, restart your PC
- Manually check MS Store for Updates
- Then update MSFS
If this still doesn’t work, the best course of action is to log out, restart your computer, and log back in.
The first thing to try is closing down MSFS and restarting it. The downloading should start again once MSFS is restarted. If there are problems with a particular file downloading repeatedly (on a loop) then exit MSFS and browse to the download location where the file is downloading to using windows explorer. Delete the offending file (if it is listed) or the latest downloaded file in that folder and then restart MSFS. The patch should continue as normal. (Note only delete files do not delete folders!)
