Adobe Flash Player stops working on Windows 10

Windows 10 Flash Player

Microsoft is believed to be working on an
automatic Windows 10 update that will kill off Adobe Flash
Player completely in 2021. Windows 10 update won’t affect
any third-party programs and Chrome or Edge browser plug-ins,
but Adobe is now rolling out a server-side update that blocks
Flash Player content.

Flash Player hasn’t received any update since December 2020 and
it has been on a downward trajectory since HTML5 and other
alternatives came out. Adobe has been planning to end
support for Flash Player for a few years now and it has
also been working closely with tech giants to disable the flash
player.

Starting January 13, Flash content no longer runs in Flash
Player on Windows 10, third-party apps, and web browsers like
Chrome.

If you try to open Flash Player content, Windows 10 app or the
browser will automatically block the content and you’ll see the
following icon:

Flash Player content

The icon opens Adobe’s warning page highlighting the Flash
Player end of life. Unfortunately, it looks like there’s no
easy way to load the flash content again, which means some of
your flash-based online games will also stop working.

Flash contents won’t work in any versions of Windows 10 and it
is recommended that you manually remove Flash Player software.

Microsoft is ending Flash Player support in Edge

Microsoft and Google have confirmed that they’re planning to
remove Flash component from their web browsers later this
month.

As we mentioned at the outset, an update will be pushed via
Windows Update and Windows Update for business over the next
few weeks to eliminate the legacy flash player. Windows
update will also remove the ‘Flash Player’ section from the
Control Panel.

Even with these changes, it’s highly likely that Flash-related
components may continue to reside on your device. You should be
able to remove all Flash Player apps and standalone installers
from the Control Panel > Programs & Features page or Apps &
Features page in the Settings app.
