In Flight Simulator X, or FSX, you can chat with other players after joining a multi-player server. Flight Simulator X is a video game from Microsoft Corporation which lets you fly various aircrafts on realistic maps. When playing in multi-player mode, Flight Simulator X users can chat with each other to coordinate their actions.

Join a multi-player server by using Flight Simulator X's "Multiplayer" interface.

Press the "CTRL," "SHIFT" and "]" keys at the same time on your keyboard to enable the chat box.
