    Windows 10 Adobe Flash Player


    Im trying to stream something online. I notice they have a message that says flash player is not updated etc.

    I checked my computer and typed in adobe but i do not find it there. Im pretty sure i have a flash player.

    Can someone tell me how do i find out if i have a flash player? I was pretty sure i downloaded adobe x or something like that a while ago. And also where would i download the adobe flash player for windows 10?

    Check Control Panel/Flash Player.

    What browser are you using?

    If you're using Firefox, you'll need to download the Flash Plug-in.

    Chrome is built in,

    IE and Edge use ActiveX within Windows.

    Doesn't Chrome now block flash?

    Edge and IE use Flash, though in Creators update Flash is disabled in Edge by default. The version of Flash in use is supplied by Microsoft and kept up to date through Windows Update. The latest update is KB 4034662 Security update for Adobe Flash Player: August 8, 2017. It is not possible to install Flash for Edge or IE from Adobe or any other source. Check your update history...

    Third-party browsers like Firefox cannot use the version of Flash installed by Microsoft, so need to be separately updated direct from Adobe.

    Not sure what that's got to do with Flash, but only IE supports ActiveX.
    Microsoft said:
    Microsoft Edge is the default browser experience for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. However, if you're running web apps that need ActiveX controls, we recommend that you continue to use Internet Explorer 11 for them.

    I use chrome.


    When i type in flash player on search it shows flash player 32 bit as a program.


    However do you think this has to do with me viewing these streaming sites in incognito mode? I also have adblock on as well on chrome.

    Since Chrome 55, flash has to be installed as a standalone plugin.

    Chrome incognito mode you allow Flash Player on a site by site basis, a message should come up.

    Your problem may well be the Ad Blocker which interferes as Flash Player maybe used in Ads.

    I don't use an Ad Blocker.

    "Doesn't Chrome now block flash? "
    No, it complains, but you just allow it, on a site by site basis. Same for Edge.
    IE and Edge Flash Players are updated by Windows updates, Chrome has it's own version which is updated along with Chrome updates, I'm on version 61.
    To view the Flash version put chrome://flash or chrome://components in the address bar.
