Microsoft Is Finally Expunging Adobe Flash From Windows 10
Microsoft says the KB4577586 “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” will be part of the Preview Update for Windows 10, version 1809. That arrives in June. In July, that update will roll out to all versions of the operating system.
The company also said all hardware running Windows 10 version 21H1 or later will have Flash removed by default.
As of July 2021, the KB4577586 “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” will be included in the Latest Cumulative Update for Windows 10, versions 1607 and Windows 10, version 1507. The KB will also be included in the Monthly Rollup and the Security Only Update for Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard.The firm said
The long-overdue death of Flash comes after it was purged from almost all of the major web browsers. It disappeared from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer at the end of 2020, for example. Microsoft itself announced plans to phase out the tech way back in 2017.
Adobe itself has also been working on lessening the presence of the software that has somewhat brought its name into disrepute in the past few years. Flash animations are responsible for some of the most unmanageable ads on the web and can even contain malware.
There will be some people who miss the software, especially as it’s a way to play some older games that have been made as or converted to Flash files. There are some emulators that can help with that, by restoring Flash compatibility if you’re feeling like taking a step back into a decidedly less enjoyable web experience.
