Hello, hope you are well. I have Adobe Flash player ENABLED in Microsoft Edge for Windows 10, yet when I check on the Adobe website, it tells me that Flash player is disabled. I do not understand why. Additionally, when I go to a website I need to access for school, it gives me an error message saying I need to "upgrade" Flash player. When I go to the Adobe site to check for upgrades, it just tells me that Flash player is already integrated with Windows 10 and that I am up to date.

 

Can someone please help me figure out what I need to do to get Flash player to work? I really need to access my school work. I am not sure why the website is telling me to upgrade when I can not upgrade. I am not sure why Adobe is telling me my flash player in disabled, when it is enabled. Furthermore, there is that icon on the troubleshooting page with clouds moving. I can see the clouds moving on the image which means that Flash is working, but then when I click the "Test Flash Player" it says Flash is disabled. How can Flash be disabled if I am seeing the icon images moving on the Adobe page?

 

I have attached for references of the error messages and of the things I referenced in this post. You can also see in the final image that I have Flash player turned ON in my browser settings. 

 

Please help and many thanks in advance!!

It's also the case that every browser has a slightly different approach to how they block Flash, and every website has some mechanism that detects it.  The reality is that you might have to experiment with the available browsers to find a combination of OS/browser/website that works, and this situation is likely to deteriorate as we progress towards the end-of-life for Flash in 2020 and browsers continue to increase the friction required to keep Flash running.

This fix isn't working for Facebook Gameroom. I've done all the steps suggested and still get the error message "need to run adobe flash player" when trying to access my games. It won't let me play the games in Facebook Gameroom as of yesterday. Any other suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated as these games are my only source of entertainment.
