Disabling Adobe Flash Player On Your Microsoft Edge Or Internet Explorer (Windows 10)

As most of you already know, the Adobe Flash Player is slowly dying and it is just a matter of time until the HTML5 will take over. In fact, HTML5 is already being used by big companies such as YouTube, but other websites will not switch to the new player.

The reason why Adobe Flash Player is dying is mostly because the big security issue it has, along with all the bugs, incompatibility and other problems that the application hasn’t fixed yet. It seems that Microsoft is already taking the initiative, as once you update to Windows 10 Creators Update, you will notice that it will automatically block Flash content.

The American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington has also mentioned that websites that already support HTML5 will work without any problems and the users will have a clean experience.

We have to mention that once you visit a website that has Flash content in it with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, you will have two options to either “Allow Once” or “Always Allow” Adobe Flash Player to run on your browser.

We suggest you to just select “Allow Once,” (if you really want to see the flash content) so that you can also block Adobe Flash Player on strange websites that you don’t trust.
