How to Uninstall MSFS on Steam:
How to Uninstall MSFS on Microsoft Store/Game Pass:
Once uninstalled, check to make sure all files are deleted. If you have game files in a different directory than where the app is installed by default (C: drive) uninstalling the game will not delete those files.
Search for anything under ‘Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe’ or ‘MicrosoftFlightSimulator’ and ensure all files are deleted.
Once the previous steps are done, you can reinstall Microsoft Flight Simulator. Make sure to follow the Download & Installation guides.
If the issue persists, please contact support via Zendesk and send us your DxDiag and Msinfo.

- In the tool, click on ‘Save All Information’ and wait a few seconds
- Save the file as a ‘Text File (*.txt)’ on your desktop
- Attach the file to your response.
To provide a Microsoft System Information MSINFO32, do the following steps below:
- Press Windows + R keys to open the Run command window

- This will open the System Information, click File and select Export

Once these files we’ll be received by our team, we’ll investigate further.
