The installation path (or installation folder) of the Aerofly FS 2 is usually defined in the Steam settings.
This will open the installation folder of the Aerofly FS 2 in a separate Windows Explorer window.
The installation folder contains all libraries, executables, game-content like textures or models and shaders. The folder contains sub-folders like the aircraft and scenery folder for the default aircraft and sceneries. Custom made aircraft or scenery should not be installed to these folders, use the user-folder instead (see below).
The user folder of the Aerofly FS 2 is a location on the hard drive that is not touched by any Aerofly FS 2 updates. Here all contents either created by the user or installed as add-ons are located. Per default this folder is created in the user-documents.
A short-cut for this directory is:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Aerofly FS 2. Simply paste this path into the path text-box of the Windows Explorer, it should automatically replace
%USERNAME% with the Windows user currently logged in and open the user folder.
Aerofly FS 2 user folder contains sub-folder for the installation of aircraft and scenery, a folder for saved screenshots as well as the personal settings for the simulator (see config-files) as well as the mission progress (flight school) and the tm.log.
When inside the installation or user folder of the Aerofly FS 2 go one directory higher in the Windows Explorer, so that you can see the “Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator” or “Aerofly FS 2” folder in the Windows Explorer, then either drag it to the left column of the Windows Explorer to add it into your “Favorites” or right-click on it and select “Send to” → “Desktop (create link)”.
