Flash Player requires permission every time

  wildhouse 18:13 25 Feb 2019

I updated my Windows 10 PC at the weekend and since then when I use Adobe Flash Player on Edge it constantly asks me for permission, however, there is only one option to choose - allow only once. Does anyone know how to allow it every time? Thanks.

This may help click here, however MS may have removed the ability to turn it on permanently in the latest updates due to security concerns.

Thanks, Bris. Have already tried option 1 and have enabled Flash, however, everytime I load Farmville (sad, but I enjoy it!) I have to allow Flash regardless. Not sure if I want to mess around with option 2 so may wait for the next update to see if they do anything with it.

Unfortunately all major browsers have been trying to kill off flash player for years and have gradually reduced access to it. It is likely that in the not too distant future that access will be removed entirely as HTML5 takes over. This means that a future update to fix it is very unlikely.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

That's just how it should be. Flash is easily hacked and you don't want to risk it being permanently enabled

I removed Flash some time ago and don't miss it. It is very, very rare the lack of Flash causes a problem.

Old Deuteronomy - obviously not a Candy Crush and Farmville player, then!
