If you are using Windows 10 and its Edge browser, you might be wondering how to disable Adobe’s popular Flash plugin. By default, Edge supports Flash as a built-in feature, so it’s basically enabled all the time. But what if you don’t want to use Flash while browsing the web due to many security vulnerabilities? Well, you can easily disable it right in Microsoft Edge. Wanna know how it’s done? Let’s walk along with me.
Steps to disable Flash in Edge for Windows 10
Step 1: First off, you are supposed to open Edge from your Start menu, taskbar, or desktop.
Step 2: Once you are in, click the More button in the upper right corner of the browser window. It looks like three little dots.
Step 3: Choose Settings from the drop-down menu to reveal a small windowpane on the right side of the browser window.
Step 4: Click the View advanced settings button located at the bottom of the pane.
Step 5: In the end, you need to click the little toggle button under Use Adobe Flash Player to set it to Off.
From now on, whenever you visit a website that requires Flash, you will get a message saying Flash is not installed.
