NEW DELHI: Microsoft announced that full removal will begin Adobe Flash of Windows 10 from July. The tech giant has announced that Windows 10 “Update to remove.” Adobe Flash Player “permanently removes Flash as a component from the operating system.
The company also said that upgrading to Windows 10 version 21H1 will also remove the software from the operating system.
Microsoft announced that the update that removes Adobe Flash will also be available for older operating systems such as Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard.
The company has already removed Flash support from its Edge browser with an update. It removes the flash component from the operating system to keep customers safe. Microsoft has also released the full timeline for the update.
In July 2017, Microsoft, along with Adobe and its industry technology partners, announced that Adobe Flash Player would no longer be supported after December 2020. The decision to end support for Flash Player was made by Adobe because of the reduced use of the technology and by Adobe for the availability of better, more secure options such as HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly.
In line with this plan, Microsoft ended support for Adobe Flash Player on Microsoft Edge (both the new Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Edge Legacy) and Internet Explorer 11 last year.
