Windows 10: How does Flash get updated in IE/Edge?

    How does Flash get updated in IE/Edge?

    So I noticed I'm at Flash 19.x.x.x in my IE program at work. We use SCCM to determine what updates get pushed out and I'm wondering if maybe something isn't configured properly in the setup since we seem to be behind.

    Since the critical patch thing came out today we want to get everyone updated but don't know where to find the updates to push them through

    Do they show up as Windows Updates for IE? Do they say Flash? Is there a specific naming convention or KB I can look for to find them? Any help would be great.

    MS will release an update to IE/Edge in Windows 10 since Flash is embedded in the code. It will look like this and comes through Windows Update.

    Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3144756)

    second to what phone man said, MS often lag behind on updating flash. Mozilla and various other browsers have a higher current version number than IE11 and edge if you go to 'about' after right clicking something running flash. You'll see the list showing all the latest versions
