I'm running Win10 with Steam. I'm trying to add the Qantas texture to my Team FS Electra L188. I have no idea how or where to copy and paste to change the CFG. I'm not really that knowledgeably on this and I tend to prefer to get complete packages. The L188 is my primary Aircraft and I'd like to have it with the Qantas Textures. Can any one help.

Pete.

Thanks. It sort of helps. Windows 10 won't let me open it to begin with. I have to search the chrome shop for a program that will let me. I'll go explore.

Windows 10 won't let you open FSX? What error messages are you getting? Any at all?

No I can open FSX no problem and it runs great etc. Windows 10 won't let me open the CFG folder or any CFG Folder. It says I require an Extension App to open the folder. The App store is not helpful as such. I tried their recommendations and so far no joy. It's not a big deal, as I fly from the inside, it was just I would have liked either the Ansett or Qantas livery on the Electra, as it is the Aircraft I fly the most, 99% of the time. It's not that big of a deal.
It took me longer to figure out how to get FSX to work on windows 10 without crashing in the first place. It works better than with XP or 7 etc, and I get awesome frame rates in Max detail.. It was more about icing on the cake, Icing I can't see because I'm in the Cockpit. I'll keep working at it till I find a solution. I just wondered if anyone else had encountered this and could help me shortcut it a bit.
