    Edge works again. Check again that Flash is enabled. Back to the Adobe site. Still just the static F logo. Shall we play a game?

    Shockwave


    NOPE! "Please update your flash player"

    That link looks like it uses the same command I posted above here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html


    I just tested that "Shockwave" site in my Microsoft Edge, and I see the same need to update message even though Adobe Flash Player is working in it. I also tested the link in IE11, and it doesn't work in it.

    It appears to be a issue with that specific site.

    That's because it's the error page one gets shunted to when attempting to go to a game from the flash site. If Flash was actually working in Edge on my computer, it would not have been redirected there.

    Well, that's the thing though. Adobe Flash Player works fine for me in both IE11 and Microsoft Edge, but not for that site.

    Hi, I have exactly the same situation. Windows 10 creators is up to date. have defaulted Edges etc and it still does not work.

    It does not seem to be a global setting, and must be activated for every website? Am I correct in this assumption?

    That is of course after getting it to work first.

    Hello Geoff, :)

    Edge will block untrusted Adobe Flash content by default. It appears it may be a bit over aggressive if you're having to unblock for every site, but that can be a good thing considering how vulnerable Adobe Flash can be.

    The page before you got shunted off is presumably http://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding...svszombies.jsp

    In Edge I don't get diverted to your error page, it stays on that page but says 'Please Update/Enable Your Flash Player' regardless of whether Flash is turned on or not.

    In IE Flash is working and I can play the game. To switch to IE from Edge, click the 'three dots' and select 'open with Internet Explorer'.

    Hope its OK to post all this here...... any ideas welcome, or is this happening for others ?

    I'm having issues with Flash in Edge (CFU, fully updated). The images explain it all...

    1/ The BBC Weather page generates an error saying I need Flash Player.

    4/ The 'Test Flash Player' link from earlier in this thread seems to work ! Where the advert is in this image is initially an animated Flash logo/image that I assume is working OK. This page tells me which version I have installed.

    Hi,
    Does option 2 stop win-10 flash player updates from resetting flash player settings to always allow content to download... ?
    Control panel/ flash player settings is what I'm referring to they always get changed from my preference which is Block to allow with every update :/
