Disable Flash in Microsoft Edge (Windows 10)

How to disable Flash in Microsoft Edge (Windows 10)

In Windows 10 you don’t need to install separately flash player like you used in previous Windows versions or browsers like IE/Chrome/Firefox. Now flash player is integrated with Microsoft Edge, the replacement of Internet Explorer.

Recently a new (yes, yet another one) vulnerability has been discovered for Adobe Flash Player. In order to update it you can’t go directly to Adobe website but rather it will updated with Windows Update.

In order to allow or block Flash on Edge you should follow the following steps:

  • Click the button “…” on the upper right corner of Microsoft Edge

  •   Click on View Advanced Settings
  • Look for “Use Adobe Player” and click on it to change from On to Off

Remember: Flash is a buggy software. Update it but try to keep it disabled unless you really need it (most cases you won’t!).
