Windows 10: Adobe Flash Player

    Adobe Flash Player


    Hi,Adobe Flash Player comes with Win 10,I have it enabled but recently went onto an account to pay a bill online (using Edge browser) and it said I needed the latest version of Adobe Flash,Adobe site tells me Flash is built into Win 10. Internet Explorer gives me access to my account and enables me to manage my account online, are there any settings in Edge I need to look at or options to get the latest version of Flash Player,Thanks

    MS has started to move away from Flash reducing the number of sites that automaticaly run it. To accept Flash, see if this helps Extending User Control of Flash with Click-to-Run

    Thanks C G, When I sign into my account the option to allow Click and run of Flash does not appear,seems this is a problem for other users of Edge when they want to use online banking.When I go on the Adobe Flash site there is a box "Test Flash Player" which I opened to be told Flash is disabled but in my Edge settings I have it enabled,i'm at a loss

    I have encountered the same issue with some sites, but was able to complete my purpose (not a banking site) by using another browser.

    Be wary. It may be the site needs to update or an issue with Edge - or possibly a malware attempt. Recommend not using the site to update Flash.

    You also have to click on the puzzle piece Icon on right of Address Bar and 'Allow once' or 'Always Allow'.
    Every website has to be enabled individually.

    Excuse my ignorance,could you please explain what "puzzle piece" is, The Allow Once or Always Allow are not given as an option in the account page I am trying to use.

    I've enjoyed the same behavior. Even thought about using IE to see if it would update Flash Player. Then one day through Windows Update I got a Security Update for FP and haven't encountered an update message since.

    In the top right corner of Edge next to the Settings icon, etc,, at times will appear a "puzzle piece" (icon that looks like a puzzle piece). If Flash is blocked, click and it will offer to allow.

    However, in my experience that icon is not always available when some sites block Flash.

    Forgive me but I would like to reopen this topic,Flash blocked on my ISP account, I installed Opera browser and installed Flash player for Opera,I am able to use my account after enabling Flash for all sites in Opera settings.I logged into my account using Edge and found that the puzzle piece to allow Flash was available in the top right corner,this has never been an option since I have been using Edge,could it be related to my installing Flash for Opera? Anyway my problem has been solved but I don't know how :)
