[Software] Windows will completely remove Adobe Flash Player from Windows 10 starting in June


Recommended Posts



Microsoft has announced that it will permanently remove the Adobe Flash Player component from its Windows 10 operating system, with an update that will be released to all users starting in June.


Official support for Adobe Flash ended on December 31, 2020, and since the beginning of December the service has not received security updates and Adobe itself blocks its reproduction.


Microsoft has now announced that Windows 10 will receive a specific update to remove Adobe Flash Player, with the technical name KB4577586, which will begin to be disseminated among users of the operating system in versions 1809 (October 2018 update) and later from June.


The US company has explained in a statement that it has made this decision to "keep its users safe", because Flash no longer receives security updates.


Microsoft has recalled that users who go to the next big update of Windows 10, 21H1 or ‘May 2021’, will already have Flash removed, and has also announced that this will be extended to all their systems with support.


For Windows 10 versions 1607 and 1507, as well as monthly updates for Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard, the update that completely removes Flash will be released in July. The new version of the system without Flash can now also be installed manually.
