Hi Folks, its been 2 months since i have been flying. Today I wanted to add the free fly away Dash-8 and downloaded and unzipped the file. Now I can’t find the community folder. here is what i used to do: C:\users\myname\appdata\local\packages\msfs\localcache\packages\community. So I can just go this far: C:\users\myname\ and there is no appdata folder. I have spend a couple hours trying to find the folder with no luck. It has to be somewhere??? Help if you can!! Thanks!
Are you struggling to find your Community folder?
C:\Users[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Packages\ Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community
C:\Users[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightDashboard_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community
If you happened to use a custom location for your Flight Simulator installation, then proceed there. Example: F:\Flight Simulator\Community\
Copy and paste the appropriate folder location into the File Explorer address bar:
Windows Store install:
%APPDATA%\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community
Boxed version install:
If you happened to use a custom location for your Flight Simulator installation, then locate the custom folder and look for the Community folder there.
Still can't find it?
- While running MSFS do the following:
- Go to Options / General
- Click on
Developerswhich you will find at the bottom of the list on the left
- Switch Developers Mode on
- On the Dev Menu on top select
Tools > Virtual File System
Open Community Folder
Appdata is hidden by default. Needs hidden files to be made visible in Explorer’s settings.
Thanks everyone!! I’ll get on it tonight!!
