Starting with SU11, when I try to exit the flight sim after completing a flight, I’m back on the desktop, but the MSFS process is still running and visible on the Windows taskbar. “Close window” from the context menu does nothing. I have to restart Windows, use the task manager (End task) or Steam to force the process to quit.
I purchased on Steam. I’m flying in VR using SteamVR. OpenXR Toolkit is active. Nvidia drivers are 526.47 (updating to 526.86 now).
Anybody else with the same issue? Is it a known problem, is there a fix or workaround?

Sometimes it is the same situation.
Sometimes it doesn’t.
This is the STEAM version.
In my case, it doesn’t go forward from the black screen even at startup, and in that case, when I press Alt+Tab to switch windows, a spinning loading icon appears in the lower right corner and it goes ahead as if nothing happened.
I have this issue. I’ve narrowed it down to only a certain set of payware airports from one dev that I own. Only his airports, and only if they’re used in the sim. If they’re not, it quits normally. If I use two of his airports, maybe for both dep/arr, the freeze is more common just going to main menu. Meaning I end task, and it counts as a CTD (prompts safe mode next boot). If i end task while quitting to desktop, no prompt.
I have heard this is happening with some freeware airports as well.
Also, I’ve had this throughout the 11 beta as well (on MS store). And no, the recent online server issues arent effecting this.
