Google Chrome is one of the most popular and widely used web browsers nowadays. But, just like with other browsers, it can develop issues when running web clients like Adobe Flash Player. If you want to use Flash Player on Chrome and find out that it’s not working, here are some of the steps you can take to fix it:
- Turn on Flash Player
Starting with Chrome 55 and onwards, Google Chrome supports HTML5 content by default and automatically blocks content that runs on Flash Player. So, if you’re using Chrome 55 or higher, there’s a chance that Adobe Flash Player is blocked on your browser.
To unblock it, simply open Google Chrome, click on the menu icon, and go to “Settings”. Scroll down to find “Advanced” and click on it. On the “Privacy and security” section, choose “Content settings”, click on “Flash”, and turn on the toggle button beside “Allow sites to run Flash”. You can also turn on the “Ask first” setting if you want. Don’t forget to check the “Block” section to see if the websites you want to visit are listed under it.
- Update Flash Player
If you’ve turned on Adobe Flash Player but still can’t access Flash-based content, you might be using an outdated version of it. If this is the case, you’ll need to update the web client. Open Chrome, type “chrome://components” on the address bar, and press Enter. Scroll down until you find “Adobe Flash Player”, then click on the “Check for update” button. Go back to the webpage where you’re having problems with Flash content and see if the content is already running. If it isn’t, refresh the page by pressing F5 or clicking on the Reload button.
Another way to update Flash Player is to get it directly from Adobe’s official website. Go to get.adobe.com/flashplayer and click on the “Install now” button. You can also uncheck the boxes beside Adobe’s optional offers if you don’t want to install these free programs. Once you’ve downloaded the installer file, follow the instructions on the screen to install it on Google Chrome and get the latest version of Flash Player.
