  1. Unable to pre-download flight simulator to my external ssd


    I just pre ordered the new Microsoft Flight Simulator on the Microsoft Store but when I try to pre-download it I can't seem to find my external ssd in the drop down menu. I chatted with Microsoft customer support and they told me to wait until after the game is released to download it. I just wanted to hear what the community would say about this situation. If anyone is wondering, I have selected my external ssd as my default drive for new content in all fields. If any of you can assist me in combating this issue your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    • Press “Windows key + X”, select Control panel.
    • Open programs and features.
