Adobe Flash player is directly integrated with Google Chrome and enabled by default. Any updates available for Adobe Flash player are automatically included in Google Chrome Browser system updates.
If you wish to use Adobe Flash in other browsers, you’ll need to download the Adobe Flash Player separately for these browsers.
Disable Adobe Flash
- Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
- Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on Chrome OS).
- Click the Under the Bonnet tab.
- Click Content settings.
- In the Content Settings dialogue that appears, click the Plug-ins tab.
- Click Disable individual plug-ins.
- On the Plug-ins page that appears, find the “Flash” listing.
To disable Adobe Flash completely, click the Disable link under its name.
If you’ve previously installed Adobe Flash separately, you’ll see two files listed for the plug-in. To disable a specific version of Adobe Flash, click Details at the upper right-hand corner of the page. Then click the Disable link for the version of Adobe Flash that you want to disable. The version of Adobe Flash that’s been built in to Google Chrome shows the file gcswf32.dll in its location field.
- Restart the browser.
You can also type about:plugins in the address bar to open the Plug-ins page quickly.
