If you are running FS19 through Steam then the default installation path is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Farming Simulator 19. Select this path or wherever you installed FS19. If you don’t know where you can right-click on the FS19 launch icon and select properties. On that screen, the START IN folder is what you are looking for.
