A flash player is one of the most basic plugins which might be required by a browser. The results of using the flash player plugin, distributed by Adobe, is that it allows the end user to view and interact with multimedia, videos, audios, and other content.
Most of the times, the browser already has a default flash player installed. For example, Adobe Flash Player is preferred by the Google Chrome Browser.
However, there might be a few issues which might disallow it from rendering the content automatically. In this case, the browser displays a notification which you might view at the top left of your screen with two buttons allow and disallow.
So, when viewing a video or playing a game, if you come across this error, simple press “enable” so your browser can turn the flash player on and remember this setting for subsequent videos or games.
If you have the flash player installed and still wishes to turn it on in the Google Chrome settings.
Here is how you can do that:
- Open your Google Chrome browser by pressing its icon
- The “settings” option resides in a sub-menu. To open this menu, hover over to the top right of your screen where the three dots are placed. Press the menu icon, to open a menu with a bunch of different options.
- Hover over to the “Settings” option.
- Click on the “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
- After the settings window opens, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Advanced Settings”.
- Under the privacy and security header, click on the “content settings” tab.
- Locate the “Flash” tab and press the button or simply click on it.
- Turn on “Ask First (recommended)” to enable the flash player.
By following these simple steps, you have successfully turned on the Flash Player for your browser and won’t have to turn it on manually ever again.
