Microsoft is set to start the complete removal of the Adobe Flash from Windows 10 in this summer. The company will roll out a Windows 10 update for the “Removal of Adobe Flash Player,” which would permanently remove Flash as a part of the operating system.
Adobe’s Flash Player was released in 1996 and was one of the most popular online technologies until its rivals like HTML5 became famous, but suffered from security bugs and poor performance.
In October 2020, Microsoft allowed selected users to remove Flash from supported versions of Windows by providing patches. This is an optional feature that allows the user to choose when to remove Flash from the system. In February, the company issued an update called the KB4577586 Update. This allows you to uninstall Flash Player on Windows 10 or Windows Server. However, the update is optional and allows the user to block the installation on the computer. In June 2021, the preview update for Windows 10 1809 and later includes KB4577586 by default. This is optional. This means that users can continue to use Flash for some time.
Windows 10 will also automatically delete all Flash and related files when the user updates the system to. Latest version, 21H1.. The latter is currently available in the Windows Insider Program and will ship within a few weeks with some minor updates.
