Adobe Flash Player is one of the world’s most-used software with applications that include video and audio streaming and game playing on browsers. It is common, however, for people to encounter problems while trying to use the program. Most of these problems emerge if you have neglected to update Adobe Flash Player for any given amount of time.
How to Update Flash On Windows 7
Although it has since been replaced by Windows 8 and Windows 10, Windows 7 remains one of the most popular operating systems in the world. Today, this enduring OS is still being used by over 48.37% of the market. This makes it, by far, the most-used operating system in the world, far surpassing Windows 10, which is being used by around 24.36% of all the computers that are in the world.
Updating Flash in Windows 7 is simple enough and can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. The first thing that you should know beforehand is that Flash comes in different versions for different browsers, such as Firefox and Internet Explorer, which means that the ways in which the updates are carried out are slightly different.
Visit the Adobe Website
The easiest way you can get the latest version of Flash on your browser is by going to the Adobe website, https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. Once there, you need to click on the “Install Now,” button that is on the bottom-right corner of the page. You should note, however, that you are usually presented with a raft of other options, all of which you can deselect before beginning the installation process.
Clicking on the yellow “Install Now” button allows you to download the Flash Download Manager. Click on “Save” to save it to a place on your computer. Once the download manager has been downloaded, go to wherever it is stored on your computer and click on it. Click “Yes” when Windows asks you whether or not you wish to install Flash on your computer.
The Download Manager will now begin to download the entire Flash Player file. The length of the process largely depends on how fast your internet connection is.
Once the installation process has been completed, you will get a confirmation message asking you to restart your computer in order to allow the updates to take effect.
