Adobe Flash Player is a fundamental element of today’s browser experience, and has been so for the most part of the last decade. The option to use HTML5 for video content was existent before, but people preferred Adobe Flash due to the undisputed superiority of the Adobe product. Google made the next step by making Adobe Flash an integral part of its browser, literally. Google has integrated the Flash player into Google Chrome, meaning that Chrome users don’t have to download and install anything Flash related anymore. However, if you find yourself using another browser, you probably still have to update this crucial service manually. That is, of course, if you intend on experiencing any video or audio content online. If not, then having an outdated Flash version might not be as bad.
The update process is quite simple. You could catalogue it as an inconvenience, but you can’t stamp it as hard or time consuming. The first thing you need to do is go to the Adobe website. There, you will be welcomed by update indications, and a big button that tells you to install the latest version. Click on the button, and then proceed to save the presented file in your PC. Once the download is completed, open the file. The install directions provided by the Adobe setup wizard are pretty straightforward and easy to follow. If you follow the on-screen instructions, you will be fine. Most of the steps present you with additional information, while you just have to click your way to the next one. You might also be asked about wanting to install some additional software that comes bundled with Adobe. If you don’t, just deselect the option.
Once the process is complete, close the setup wizard and that’s it. Now your computer has the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed.
