How to Enable Flash in Chrome

Thinking on Enabling Flash for Google Chrome in Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, Windows 10 /Macintosh. Some say use chrome //settings/content/flash player, chrome //plugins page, enable flash safari using chrome //settings/content in the chrome address bar. I tried them and chrome/settings/content enable flash, enable flash firefox, changed chrome plugins settings. Nothing worked for me except the following method. It enabled me to enable Flash in Chrome Browser and Allowed all sites show Flash and use flash player.

Adobe Flash Player is in-built in Google 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. Go to www.get.adobe.com/flashplayer to download it. You go and download Flash player and update it as suggested. The game or application will not run even after updating Flash. Why?

Chrome settings>Advanced Settings>Content Settings>Flash>Allow sites to run flash

Mostly all websites ask you go to Chrome settings>Advanced Settings>Content Settings>Flash>Allow sites to run flash. It works for some but does not for many.

For Latest Version of Chrome

Go to Chrome settings>Advanced Settings>Content Settings>Flash>Check if the blue button near Ask first (recommended)  is on.

If you are seeing "Block sites from running Flash", then click on that and it will change to Ask first (recommended)


Go to Chrome. Copy chrome://flags/#prefer-html-over-flash and paste in a tab. Press enter. Search for Flash and see if the options are selected to Default. If not, make them default. You can also do a reset to Default option.


Go to Chrome. Copy chrome://flash/ and paste it a tab and press enter. It will show Loading for sometime and show some of the following details.

Uninstall Chrome and install Chrome New version

How to Enable Flash in Chrome if you have done all the steps mentioned in other websites but still not able to run Flash. One way is to uninstall Chrome and install Chrome new version from Official Website. 

Use Chrome Canary Version for Flash

Chrome Canary is designed for developers and early adopters. It is like the Beta version. It works same as Google Chrome but really unstable and not recommended for average users. Download Google Canary and Install in your Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, Windows 10 /Macintosh. Run the FB game, Vudu TV, Direct TV, Application etc and see if Flash is working.
