My videos won't play from flash player; I tested flash and did the troubleshooting methods here (Adobe Flash Player issues with Windows 10 (Microsoft Edge)​ but still, no luck. It was already toggled to on, and even after refreshing, nothing changed...can anyone help me make sure that I'm able to use videos on my laptop again?

Thank you!

Edge requires uses to enable Flash for each site that has Flash content.  There is no 'enable always for all sites' option.  What is the exact link to the video you are attempting to view?  Is it Flash content?  If you right-click on the video area, does it display the Flash context-menu, or the HTML5 context-menu?

No, it doesn't. I'm referring more to videos on Facebook; they'll click,

like a flash and then nothing after that. i'll click them again and the

same thing. no idea what the issue is there...any guesses?

No, it doesn't.

Yes...see Extending User Control of Flash with Click-to-Run - Microsoft Edge Dev BlogMicrosoft Edge Dev Blog  for more information, including "When you visit a website that attempts to load Flash content while browsing with Microsoft Edge in the Windows 10 Creators Update, you may notice that certain aspects of the website are not working the way you expect them to. This unexpected behavior may be a result Flash being blocked by default due to the Flash Click-to-Run feature."

I'm referring more to videos on Facebook; they'll click,

like a flash and then nothing after that. i'll click them again and the

same thing.

You'll need to provide specific URLs and exact steps to reproduce.  'videos on Facebook' is too broad and not detailed enough.  Screenshots are always welcome, as they relay the behaviour you are observing, which may or may not be reproducible.

I'm unable to get a screenshot of the issue, as it's in video and it

doesn't replicate in that way. When I click upon the ellipsis, it doesn't

give me the option to 'give feedback' by typing in the box. Here's a link

to a video on Facebook, if you log in from Microsoft Edge and please let me

know if you are having the same issue and what you did to correct it.
