Flash Player Will Soon be Gone From Windows 10 Forever

Adobe Flash Player will soon disappear from Windows 10 forever. Microsoft has announced that the plug-in will be removed from the system with a special update.

Flash Player was disabled by the end of 2020, but the plugin is still present in Windows 10 and other Microsoft systems. This is expected to change soon, thanks to a special update.

Adobe Flash used to be supported by all major web browsers, but it's now a melody of the past. Although Adobe stopped supporting its software last year, Microsoft has only now decided to finally remove Flash plugin from its OS.

The company has announced that this will happen in June 2021, when an update will be automatically downloaded to Windows users' PCs that will finally remove Adobe Flash Player from the OS. The update, named KB4577586 "Update to remove Adobe Flash Player," will be coming to Windows 10 versions 1809 and later beginning with June 8. Windows 10 1607 and 1507, will get it in July. In the same month, the update will hit Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard.

Those who don't want to wait for the automatic system update can download it now. To find the package, search for it by the KB4577586 designation. Once you have downloaded it, Adobe Flash will disappear from your operating system forever.
