    Adobe Reader and Flash for IE11 in W10?

    I'm running IE11 in W10, but does IE11 use Adobe Reader and Flash player like it does in W7? I read that Edge doesn't, but I couldn't find anything for sure about IE11 in W10.

    Both Edge and IE can use Flash, but as the IE in W10 is built in (not installed separately) you cannot update Flash yourself, the updates for Flash in IE/Edge are supplied by Microsoft through the automatic windows update.

    Edge has its own built-in pdf reader. IE can use add-ons as before, Adobe's or others.

    OK so it's alright to install Reader in IE. Thanks Bree.
