  5. Press the key combination Ctrl+V to paste the folder e.g. drive F:
  6. Check your new folder contents
  7. Navigate back to the original folder e.g.
    C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator X
  8. Delete this folder Microsoft Flight Simulator X if still there
  9. Close all Windows Explorer views and Open the Command Mode as administrator (%windir%system32cmd.exe)
  10. Type in the command line (without quotes) “mklink /j”
    (mind the space after the letter k)
  11.  After typing mklink /j  hit the space bar once and type a double quote ”
  12. Directly after this double quote, type the original location of the FSX folder and close with a double quote “
  13. The command line looks so far like: mklink /j “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator X”
  14. Hit the space bar once and type the new location of the FSX installation as on your new drive between double quotes.
  15. The command line looks like e.g. this:

  17. Mind the spaces! And then Hit ENTER
  18. Ready
  19. The mklink /j  command creates a directory junction between “Link” and “Target”
  20. This is what you read in the CMD mode
