Video: How can I see which Flash Player version is installed?
Flash Player is a plugin you install on your computer that works with your web browser so you can view Flash content. It is commonly used to view content that was created on the Adobe Flash platform. Such content includes streaming audio and video, rich Internet media, and some web-based applications.
Adobe offers a utility that you may use to check if Flash Player is installed on your computer, or to check if your existing Flash Player installation is the latest version available. When you visit Adobe’s utility, click the Check Now button to see if Flash Player is installed on your computer:
Once the utility determines if Flash Player is installed on your computer, it will tell you which version is installed. When you know the version of Flash Player that is installed on your computer, you will be able to use the utility to see if it is the latest version, and how to get the latest version if you do not already have it installed.
If the Flash Player version installed on your computer is out of date, the utility will display a notification that says, Sorry, your computer does not have the latest Flash Player installed, accompanied by your system information. Proceed to the second step of the update process.
If you already have the latest Flash Player version installed, you will see a congratulatory message display, accompanied by your system information.
If you do not have Flash Player installed on your system at all, click the Adobe Flash Player download link. Once installed, you may either follow the browser-specific links provided for how to Enable Flash Player in your browser, and then verify if Flash Player is installed on your computer.
If Flash Player is installed, you will see an animated Flash movie display:
If Flash Player is not installed on your computer, you would see a blank box instead of the animated Flash movie. To find out if you have Flash Player installed, or which version of Flash Player you have installed, please visit: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html
Please note that Google Chrome (and other Chromium-based web browsers such as Torch) and Microsoft Edge include their own Flash Player implementation. If you are running Google Chrome, please visit our Adobe Flash Player Plug-in Google Chrome article for information about updating Flash Player.
