How to use Active Pause Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020?
Just press Pause on your keyboard for Active Pause in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
The Pause button is often found in the upper right corner of a keyboard next to the print screen: the “Esc” key and pressing it freezes everything. But you cannot enable Active Pause in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 with an Xbox One controller.
This is because there is no corresponding button on the Xbox One controller yet.
As for what active pause is, it will freeze the game so that your plane gets stuck in mid-flight. This gives you the opportunity to admire the breathtaking sights all around you without having to worry about staying upright and on track.
In Active Pause mode, you can then access Showcase by heading to the toolbar at the top of the screen, selecting the “Camera” menu, and then choosing Showcase.
This essentially gives you the best opportunity to take spectacular Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 screenshots that make you look like an ace pilot rather than a learner.
When you want to become a pilot again, exit Showcase by selecting Cockpit or External View, then press the Pause key again. That is, it is impossible to leave Active Pause in Showcase mode, so players will have to return to the cockpit or the external camera before they can resume their flights.
