Enable Flash Player while browsing


When you use Chrome to browse a site that requires Adobe Flash Player to run, you are shown a message warning you that this component is not active. Fortunately for you, however, Flash is still integrated into the Google browser and, therefore, you don't have to do anything complex to get it and activate it.


Obviously, as I have already mentioned, the integration with Flash Player is temporary, until its complete disposal but, for the moment, you can activate it in order to use the contents created with this component.

That said, to activate Chrome, click on thelock icon found in the upper left corner, on the navigation bar. In the box that is shown to you, then click on the item Site settings and, in the new screen that is shown to you, go to the section Permissions of the card Privacy and Security.

Therefore, identify the voice Flash and use the appropriate drop-down menu, there on the side, to select the option Allow. Now you just have to update the web page by pressing the button F5 on the keyboard or by pressing the key recharge, in the area at the top, to see the Flash content previously blocked by Google Chrome.
