My 2070 SUPER VR settings and suggestions (Index - SteamVR) 🟢

This file is a stub (0 bytes) and I’m not sure it is actually working with the App Compat flags (I tried this one in the past and didn’t see any change). I’ve also tried the full path into WindowsApp but this didn’t seem to make any difference either to me, but this was quite a few months ago already (It might have been during the alpha prior Aug 2020).

UPDATE: Actually you can manually type the path into file explorer and this opens the FS2020 WindowsApps folder nicely.

If you have the MS Store version:

  1. Open file explorer
  2. Click on the “Path Bar” (where it shows ‘This PC’ by default)
  3. Copy/Paste the following:
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.12.13.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

When disabling full screen optimizations it is indeed creating an entry in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers


C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.12.13.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe
