Enable Flash for Google Chrome (Windows/Macintosh)


Flash is pre installed in Chrome Browser and there is no need to install flash player in your windows or Mac computer. Many of my friends from Australia, Switzerland, Norway, USA, UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Canada has been asking me solutions to fix the flash player not working issue. Follow the steps described in this post to enable flash on all websites and domains in Chrome.

Enable Flash on selected websites

To enable Flash on all websites and domains, copy the command chrome://settings/content/flash.

Open Chrome browser and press CTRL + T to open a new tab, then press CTRL + V to paste the command in the address line and then press enter.

Select Add Button near to the Allow text.

Type [*.]example.com and select add.

add a site in chrome to enable flash to play


Note: example.com means the website that you want the flash player to run. If you want to add www.shipmethis.com, type [*.]shipmethis.com

Open the website and Press CTRL + R to reload.

This will successfully enable flash in the website.

Nothing worked for me except the above method. It enabled me to enable Flash in Chrome Browser and Allowed all sites show Flash and use flash player - Jean Paul

Other methods to enable flash in Chrome

There is no need to download or update flash player in your Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, Windows 10 /Macintosh. Adobe Flash Player is in-built in Google Chrome. There are chances that sometimes when you play games in Facebook or online, Google Chrome will show a warning that Flash need to be installed or updated. So you may have go one www.get.adobe.com/flashplayer to download it. You downloaded the Flash player and update it as suggested. The game or application will not run even after updating Flash. Why?
