Flash is finally leaving Windows 10

Microsoft from the beginning of 2021 forcing Windows 10 an update that removes the 32-bit version Adobe Flash player from the operating system. It’s an update KB4577586 which was published in October 2020, when it was described as optional. It will become mandatory for everyone in July, so “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” will make sure that Flash leaves Windows 10 forever.

Microsoft, Apple, Google, Mozilla, and even Adobe itself have already left Flash, and the final end happened on January 1, 2021. Microsoft is preparing to go a step further in July, and to make update KB4577586, aka Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player, mandatory for all versions of Windows 10 operating system. The new update will not remove Flash player installations that have been downloaded from other developers, but only those that are directly connected to Windows. It is emphasized that the change will not significantly affect users, since Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari Flash left on January 1st.

Those who do not want to wait for forced removal, KB4577586 can already download from Windows Catalog, a those who suffer from nostalgia can seek old flash games and Internet Archives.
