Depending on your hardware, you may use the Windows Logo Key + PrtScn button as a shortcut for print screen. If your device does not have the PrtScn button, you may use Fn + Windows logo key + Space Bar to take a screenshot, which can then be printed.

To locate your screenshots, open File Explorer from the taskbar. On the side navigation pane, select the Pictures folder, and select Screenshots.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you can't find Microsoft Flight Simulator in your list of purchases:

1. Make sure that you are logged in with the email address used to purchase Microsoft Flight Simulator.

2. Double-check that you haven't requested a refund. If you requested a refund Microsoft Flight Simulator will not appear in your list of orders anymore.
