    If you are experiencing slow download speed when downloading Microsoft Flight Simulator, please do the following:

    • In the Windows search bar, type Command and look for ‘Command Prompt’
    • In the menu select “Run as administrator”
    • Enter: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
    • Press enter
    • Reboot your computer

    We also recommend doing the following:

    • Close the app and restart it rather than letting it hang. Note: the download will resume from where it left off you will not have to download from the start again
    • Avoid using WiFi when updating. Try using an ethernet cable instead.
    • Turn off any security software that may be interfering UAC, Antivirus, Firewall.
    • Change the installation repository from C: to D: for instance or try creating a new installation folder in the drive of your choice for instance create "MSFS" in your C: drive


    Used task manager to close MSF 2020

    Restarted, went to start, pressed icon for MSF 2020 and it started to download content, so far so good
