Where is the community package folder?

Kinda new to this program…where is the community package and how would one go about moving it to another folder…saw this suggestion in the latest update??? Thanks in advance!

Look for a file called UserCfg.Opt on your PC. Open it using any text editor. At the bottom - it points to the Packages folder path. Go to there and you will find your Community Folder.

MS Store

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

custom install

If you happened to use a custom location for your Flight Simulator installation, then proceed there. Example: F:\Flight Simulator\Community\

Still can't find it?
  • While running MSFS 2020 do the following:
  • Go to Options / General
  • Click on Developers which you will find at the bottom of the list on the left
  • Switch Developers Mode on
  • On the Dev Menu select Tools / Virtual File System
  • The community folder location can be found under Watched Bases

no need to move it, use the addon linker for addons that go in there, its a must have.
