    Flash Player Settings in Control Panel?


    Why are we still seeing an icon for Flash Player (32 bit) in Control Panel like this? I thought Flash was now embedded in browsers.

    I think this comes from a manual install that you would have to have initiated. Seen the same on my PC but didn't find how to deinstall.

    When you have Flash installed, you will always have the Flash settings app in Control panel.

    It is there for you to set your private settings, if you want to allow flash or websites to use your mic & camera and to
    give permission to how much memory space to let websites use.

    Update settings can be made there to. These settings apply to all browsers using Flash (Chrome, FireFox, IE a.s.o.)

    I might have once installed Flash but it's no longer installed. Any idea how to remove the Flash Control Panel icon since Flash stand-alone is no longer installed?
