Not just even a month that we heard that Adobe Flash player has become an ancient Adobe app. The app which is now dead and gone supported many videos on YouTube before its problems started arising.

Microsoft is now telling it’s users that the time has come to get rid of the app once and for all in their latest Windows 10 updates.

(If you haven’t updated your Windows 10, then the current update is available via its Update Catalog.)

When updated, the Windows will permanently get rid of the Adobe Flash player from the operating system, says Windows Latest. Not only Windows 10 versions 1903 and earlier and several versions of Windows Server. Rather, the same patch will  happen over every Windows update within a month or so. This kind will be available through the Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) in early 2021.

Note that if you haven’t done so, you must do it. This is because at first, the update will be optional but in a few months to come, it won’t stay that way.

This method of removing the unfunctional Adobe Flash player will be possible provided you had that app from Microsoft, if not,but you got the Adobe Flash from another source, then you must delete it yourself. 

Alternative uninstallation of Adobe Flash player will also be available via Adobe’s website. 

“Beginning in January 2021, Adobe Flash Player will be disabled by default and all versions older than KB4561600 released in June 2020 will be blocked. Downloadable resources related to Adobe Flash Player that are hosted on Microsoft website will no longer be available”, said Microsoft.

This statement urged browsers that Microsoft will remove the contents of Flash Player from its new Edge Browser.

Edge Legacy and Internet Explorer 11 users should have received their last Adobe Flash player security update in December 2020, also Google Chrome in respect has ditched the app following Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari.
