Adobe Flash has now reached the end of its life. On the last day of 2020, Adobe officially stopped its support for Flash. But now Flash itself is still part of the Windows 10 operating system components.
This makes Microsoft also have to work to close support for Flash in its operating system. It is known that this will be done in July 2021.
Microsoft has announced that through the Windows 10 21H1 update, they will remove Flash from users’ devices while ending their support for the service.
This information was also obtained from the Windows Blog where it states that this update brings a “discontinuation of support for Adobe Flash Player”. In addition, this update will also present a removal tool for Adobe Flash Player this July.
“PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN YOU UPDATE WINDOWS 10 VERSION 21H1 OR LATER, FLASH WILL BE DELETED,” WROTE THE INFORMATION FROM THE UPDATE.
As information, Adobe Flash itself is one of the services that provide support for many applications such as games to programs launched in the late 90s and early 2000s.
However now, because there are HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly, the use of Adobe Flash is also decreasing because the features that are presented in Adobe Flash are also fewer and the security is also weaker.
