Steam version where are graphic and control settings stored locally?

Does anyone know where these settings are stored and in what files?

Thanks in advance

all settings are in-game… hit esc then options
you might be referring to something else, but i thought id get the thread going.

Thanks yea I’m referring to physical file settings so they can be backed up


This is for the controller settings that are in your controller profiles. Each file in the above folder is a controller profile and can be read / modified with notepad.
You can also move them elsewhere and then start MSFS without any user made profiles (in case you think a bad profile is preventing MSFS from booting up).
This folder does not hold the graphic settings, only the controller profiles.


Graphic settings (at least some of them) is stored here:
C:\Users\ [username] \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\UserCfg.opt
