Microsoft announces a timeline for terminating support for Adobe Flash Player in Windows 10

The terms of “death” of Adobe Flash Player in Windows 10 have been announced. According to Microsoft, the system will stop receiving updates in the classic Microsoft Edge browser at the end of this year. The same applies to Internet Explorer 11. But in an assembly based on Chromium flash player will be removed in January 2021.

This will be implemented through a security update, which will be released in the fall. But at first, the patch will be available in the Microsoft Update Catalog for manual download. In 2021, it will be an option to distribute through the Windows Update Center. And then will receive the status of the recommended.

For those users who do not bother to give up Adobe Flash Player, in the summer of 2021 will be available for cumulative updates for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard. They will “clean up” all APIs, group policies, and user interfaces in branded browsers that concern the player.
