Amazing Program! Makes Aircraft Installs a 1 click breeze!

Loving this togetehr with the MSFS community downloader.

However there's one little request I have, n that is to enable the first-start menu somewhere in case you'd want to easily switch sites/provider.

But - thanks for a great tool in any case!

Very useful addon, thank you for creating.

On the ads, will flightsim.to still get the revenue?

I've done this. Click the Open Settings menu in the upper right corner, and in the Settings window, click "Edit saved packages custom installation folders." On the dialog that appears, click "Export" and save the file somewhere where you'll be able to access it on your new install. (I use a "Backup" folder in OneDrive, but a USB stick would work too.)

Then on the new system, repeat the process, but click "Import" and find the backup file you made.

This will restore all your saved install folders. You'll just need to reset your Install Folder (and turn on "Use custom installation folder" if you use an Addons Linker, which I assume you do since you're asking this) and landing page.

Note if you're a Patreon supporter that you'll want to do the restore process after entering your Patreon login -- in the current version signing into Patreon clears all the settings.

Hi,

I am moving from a Windows 10 Computer to a new Windows 11 computer and will be doing a fresh install of WindSailor on the new machine.

Can I restore my personal WindSailor data and settings from a backup of my old machine to the new one, and if so which folders and files would I need to retrieve?

I also have the same question for MSFS Community Downloader.

Hello,

would be a really, really great feature as extension for existing browsers (edge/chrome).

Do you think that is possible?

many thanks

Been using this browser for months and I like the one-click installs. It's not working anymore with flightsim.to as of today. The browser just stays on the "checking your browser" page when going to any flightsim.to link.

I'm getting an error that the path is not set, but it is, and verified correct.

can you add a Search to the stored directory settings page? I want to re-organize some things and edit their paths but scrolling through 200+ items i cant find anything!

is there a way for the software to see what I have in my folder so I can see outdated downloads and then remove them

Hi this addon is great! Any chance you could implement multiple tabs? This is a really critical feature for me as I keep a manual list of my addons and having tabs helps me keep track of what i download!

Okay, I was spending about as much time organizing and installing my downloads and updates as I was actually flying at this point, so this is a lifesaver! I hadn't used it before because I use Addon Linker due to having a zillion add-ons depending on where I'm flying, so I decided to try the latest version. Wow! Super-impressive that it just installs automatically. Great job! Heading over to the Discord server with a couple of questions and ideas for future versions, but it's awesome as-is!

Hi, I have the option for 'custom folders' set, and it usually asks me to pick a folder. Seems that for the first time, i downloaded an updated mod that i used this browser for already, and was confused that it didnt pop up the folder dialog, and discovered that it remembers where to put them. Great feature! BUT - can you show the path it is saving to next to the green progress bar? this would let me know not to expect a dialog. thanks!!!

I Downloaded The File And Ran The Install Don't Know Were It Went And Have No Shortcut On The Desktop ?

LOVE it! You've made the download process about as smooth as it can get. I love how I can specify my Addons folder and it goes directly there, unzipped and ready to go.

it's just a web browser whats the point
