Installed Google Earth on my own computer. Works a treat including the flight simulator. Installed the same on my daughter's computer but the flight simulator is missing. Grandchildren not impressed. The Google Earth program files on her computer are the exact same as on mine. I believe 'Ctrl + 'Alt' + 'A' should bring up the flight simulator. Once it has done this then it should be available from the 'Tools' menu. Try as I might I cannot get it to work. Any ideas anyone?
For information. I recently bought the latest copy of PC Pro (issue 159 £3.99) because it had Google Earth printed in large letters on the cover. There's a very informative, long, article about Google Earth. Maybe you should look at it or show it to your young 'uns. Cheers.
‘Ctrl + ‘A’ or ‘Ctrl’ + ‘Win’ + ‘A’ works fine as you suggested. (‘A’ in capitals). The ‘Caps Lock’ must be on. (‘Shift + ‘A’ doesn’t work) The flight sim is now available from the toolbar. Many thanks for your help and I’ll get a copy of the mag. Cheers
