First no disc computer. How do I run gaming programs specifically . . .

This is my first desktop w/out a disc drive. I'm wanting to download Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 when it comes out. I'm assuming there will be an option to purchase the disc set as well as the downloadable version. Is it just a matter of downloading the program to the computer and running it? Are most games downloadable and run this way? 


I have a blazing fast gaming computer and don't know how to use it!  All feedback is welcome!  Greg

I take it you mean your computer has no ODD (optical disc drive), correct? If you really want the ability to read and/or write CDs/DVDs etc. then you can purchase an external optical drive which connects to your computer via USB. Hope this helps.


Most games are downloadable these days and saved to your hard drive or SSD.
