I recently downloaded Windows 10. After doing that, I subsequently downloaded FSX. My main problem: there is no icon on my desktop to initiate the game. I made sure when downloading that the icon box was checked. I can't seem to find FSX on Windows 10. Can anyone help me? Thanx!

I did as you told. No FSX icon; a folder named microsoft games was there, which was unfortunately empty. Thanx anyway.

Odd...try Programs the folder just before that one.
It should have been in that one.
If you can't find it then try installing it again as if you didn't the first time and see what happens.

I reinstalled FSX a second time and still no FSX icon on the desktop. However ... I figured out a solution. After downloading FSX, I noticed that the FSX icon was on the lower task bar. All I did was click the right side of the mouse and pinned the icon permently to the task bar. It now starts when I want to.

Laughing Strange place for them to place it without asking but it solves your problem.
Happy flying!
