Do I really need to install FLASH PLAYER on my laptop???

What does FLASH PLAYER do for my laptop???

My laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite M645-S4065 (Is it to old???)

     It was a 2009 (Purchase date 12-28-2009) Windows-7 Pro then put to the FREE Windows-10 Pro December 30, 2016.

     I had about 60 programs in the Control Panel > Program & Features setting.

     Yesterday (12-19-2018) I had to do a RESET on my laptop due to not working properly, Mouse moving on its own, typing words on its own, putting blue square boxes on the screen with numbers inside the box etc... .

     Now in Control Panel > Programs & Features setting, I only have 4 programs.

     An HTML File is on my Desktop with 49 Programs. Adobe Flash Player is 2nd from top. When tapped, nothing happens.

     What am I supposed to do???

Thank You.

What does it do? It lets you play Flash content on web sites. Flash is a way of making parts of web pages that are animated or movies or smart. You can't tell whether you need it, but if you get rid of it, you'll get a message telling you so. Even now, you'll probably be gettting regular messages telling you to activate Flash. You can certainly get rid of it, it's easy to get back (go to ONLY the official site http://get.adobe.com/flash).
