Microsoft has completely removed Adobe Flash from Windows 10

To help keep customers safe, Microsoft began completely removing Adobe Flash from Windows 10 this summer.

Starting in July, the Adobe Flash KB4577586 update will be removed from Windows 10, which will remove Flash permanently as part of the operating system.

Beginning June 2021, the Adobe Flash KB4577586 Removal Update will be included in the update preview for Windows 10 version 1809 and later and will also be included in each subsequent cumulative update.

As of July 2021, KB4577586 is included in the latest cumulative update for Windows 10 builds 1607 and 1507.

KB4577586 is also included only in the Monthly Rollups and Security Updates for Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard.

If you upgrade to Windows 10 21H1 (which is expected to begin rolling out this month) or later, the flash memory will fill up and you can remove the flash memory at any time with the update. Update KB4577586 in the list of updates.

Microsoft has removed Flash support from its Microsoft Edge browser, and many people have received and installed the update automatically.

The flash software that came with Windows has now been removed. The updated support page states that manually installed versions of Adobe Flash Player will not be removed from other sources.

In July 2017, Microsoft, Adobe, and their technology partners announced that Adobe Flash would no longer be supported after December 2020.

To reduce technology use and provide better and safer options (such as HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly), Adobe decided to end support for Adobe Flash.

Under the plan, Microsoft will end support for Adobe Flash through its Edge browsers (Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Edge Legacy) and Internet Explorer 11 in late 2020.

The Internet Archives now store thousands of old Flash games and animations to preserve important parts of the Internet's history.
