As most of you already know, Adobe Flash Player will soon die because it still has so many security issues. This is actually the reason why the application was disabled on the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10. Well, there are still many websites that host Flash content on their websites and this is the reason why most of you still want to use Flash Player on your computers.
If you’ve updated to Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703), then you will notice that Microsoft has implemented Flash click-to-play by default. This means that Microsoft is not allowing Flash Player to be enabled on all websites. To find out what Windows 10 version is installed on your computer, head to Settings->System->About and if it has version 1703, here are the steps that you need to take in order to solve the Flash Player issue:
- Open Microsoft Edge browser and head to this Adobe website;
- Look at the address bar and you will see a “puzzle” icon on which you will need to click;
- After clicking the “puzzle” icon, a new message will display with two options:“Allow once” or “Always allow”;
- Select “Always allow” or “Allow once” and once you do this the Flash Player will run on that specific website;
- Keep in mind that you will have to do this on each website that you visit, meaning that if you have a favorite website that has Flash content on it you should set it to “Always allow,” so that you won’t need to keep setting this manually each time you visit it.
In case you visit a website and you don’t see the “puzzle” icon visible on the address bar, then it doesn’t contain Flash and you should not worry about it. Keep in mind that it is a matter of time until most of the websites will run HTML5, which will somehow “force” Adobe to stop updating its Flash Player.
