I have just tested on Win 10 version 1809 and it worked for me. So we have either a different setting or configuration.. What is your account set up as? Administrator or normal user?

Just did a quick youtube upload no voice over see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg19R3A3WeI

As I said, what's shown in your video doesn't work here. Flash is already turned on in Edge, and the Adobe Flash page basically says "Flash is included with Edge but it has been disabled on your machine." Unfortunately, none of their suggestions for enabling it actually work.

Guess Edge needs a registry tweak like the one for Chrome, above.

Update: tried editing Group Policy and Registry with various suggestions from the web, but nothing works so far. . .  :(

Don't run Chrome or Edge, use Firefox, I occasionally have to tell it to allow a page to run flash after it warns me it could be dangerous.  There is a battle calculator site for one of my games that runs flash.


I got an email from google console yesterday that one of my pages was not Mobil ready because it had flash on it and the text was too small. i had missed some WU rapid fire code I thought I had all removed and tweaked the text size from 16px to 18 px and now it validates.

Might have missed a post elsewhere about this, but I've only just discovered that Edge in Win 10 version 1809 allows Flash for "secure" (https) sites, although you have to OK it each time. My WDL is http. . . (as URL under avatar, delete pws/index.php).

If you are using win 10's native email client with an ms exchange server, it takes over a lot of group settings and the user can't change them.  I quit using the native email and only use outlook now, purging the exchange account from "accounts" in settings.  User control is back.

You can try.  It won't harm anything.  I'm on Windows 7 - highest I plan to go  :D

I got a notification from Micro$oft  that Win7 would not be supported after January. Also said while win10 could be installed on older computer they do not recommend it and I should buy a new computer..  It had win10 on it before and ruined the hard drive trying install defective updates over and over. Now my Epson printer will not work because they only have drivers for it in win10 now.  If you set your intWin10 will not automatically instsall updates, Microsoft has had major issues with all the win 10 updates. Last years creators update disabled my extra functio keys on my laptop.
