Using In-Game Menus
Getting access to important features while flying
Although you can select Flight Simulator options from the game shell (the
screen that you see when you start Flight Simulator), most of the same options
are available on the menu bar in the simulator.
Flight Simulator can run in either full-screen mode or a sizeable window (a
portion of which is shown below). To toggle between the two modes, press ALT+ENTER.
The menu bar is visible by default when running the simulator in windowed mode,
but you can choose to hide it by right-clicking the main window and clicking Hide
Menu Bar. The menu bar is hidden when running in full-screen mode.
Flight Simulator has six in-game menus: Flights, Aircraft, World,
Options, Views, and Help. Keyboard shortcuts are displayed
next to some commands on each menu. Some simple menu items are explained
completely below; more complex features are explained fully in linked articles.
