Hi
During the installation and setup of FS2020 I had several problems, computer crashes, instability issues Etc.
These are now fixed but my flight log is dismal, about 29 take-offs, 9 landings 😪
Is it possible to reset the flight log ???
I have looked in all the FS files stored on my computer, but can't find any relating to the Flight Log.
Cheers

This should help.
Read the entire thread before doing anything.

MS Store LOGBOOK location found! - Self-Service / Bugs & Issues - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

Hi
Thanks for that link.
Still no joy, that file has simply dissapeared.
I have searched every folder and file on my computer and most of the cloud.
It has to be there somewhere because the actual log is still working.
I'll probally come cross it when I'm looking for something else.
What happened to the simple file system like FSX 😀, I could manupilate that blindfolded 😉
 As a footnote, I have just ordered the Thrustmaster TCA Quadrant flight throttle, Airbus edition Etc; to add to my home made cockpit.
Not cheap but apart from my garden theres not much else to do at my age 😁
Thanks again
Cheers

Try this.
Next to the start button (bottom left) on your desktop is a long white box, type logbook into it and see if that works.

The more excellent equipment you add the more you'll enjoy it.

Hi,
Came up with a lot of on-line log books. vehicle, marine, Etc.
After scrolling through the long list nothing on my computer shows log book. 🙄
Doing a full PC search as I type, all drives including external.
Could take some time, luckely I can run it in the background.

Too bad, but now you have another idea of what to do.
Let us know if you find it.
I don't know why they hide it.

Hi again,
A few hours of intensive searching, including hidden files and zipped files still didn't give any results.
I did come across a couple of Microsoft folders with the message 'You don't have permission to open this file'
Bloody cheek, who's computer is it ??? 😉
Reset the security on those folders and run under Administrator, but still no joy.
I don't think the Log.bin would be in those folders though, completely in the wrong place.
When I have a bit of time, I'll run MSDOS, and do a search on that.
Takes quite a long time though. the commands DIR C: and DIR D: Etc list every file on my computer so theres a lot of scrolling to do.
If its not on that,  its not on my computer 😡

To check your Logbook and statistics, simply click on ‘Profile’ within the Welcome Menu.From here, select “Pilot Profiles.” You’ll now see an option for “My Logbook.” You’ll want to select this to get a complete breakdown of your various pilot statistics including how many hours you’ve piloted different craft for, where you’ve traveled from and to, and so much more.

Try turning off developer mode.

This is all I can find.
There seems to be a problem locating it since the Sim had a patch.

Thanks agin RM 😀
I just wanted to delete all the rubbish from the log book when the FS was playing up;
Start afresh.
Just attached my new Thrustmaster control. Works well and looks good, but its a bit flimsy for the price.
nearly £200. 
Would have thought it would have been a bit more robust.
Still, I'll just have to keep the grand-children away from it 😁
Thanks again

They build most of the hardware add-ons cheaply and charge high.
They know that you have no choice.
Most of the good mice start double clicking after 6 months.
I've had 3 do that, 1 Logitech and 2 Microsoft.
If they built them to last, sales would go down.
I'll stop crabbing now 😎

Totally agree.
They don't make things like they use too 😊
I have an old Commodore 64, which I bought in the 70s (or 80s, can't remember). Still works.
Although, if it was possable to load FS 2020 into it it would take about 30 years just to load 😂

I had a Vic in 82, I think the Commodore came out in 83-84.
Also a 9x9 dot matrix printer.
