Hello All.

I recently downloaded the Dash8 Q400 from this excellent site.

I need to uninstall it. I am not a computer guru and at my advanced age never likely to be.

Could someone please tell me how to do this which is in my Steam.

Many thanks,

Since it's in a different place in each of the last 4 operating systems I can't tell you where in programs it will be.
Just go to the main FSX folder (Microsoft Games), find the folder of the aircraft that you want to delete.
Delete it and all will be OK.

If it's not causing you any problems, just leave it alone.

You can uninstall it by doing the reverse/opposite of what you did to install it.

Likely, you dragged and dropped a folder into the "Aircraft" folder. If so, simply delete the folder you dragged in (or drag it out).

Also, her are some very good installation instructions:

... simply perform them backward.

And also like Radarman said - if it isn't causing any problems then don't bother uninstalling it.
