Flash player for WIndows 8.1

  • In the "Flash Player Settings Manager, Advanced" section of Windows 8, I accidentally selected 'delete all' of the "Delete all local storage, saved choices, settings and other data used by content in Flash Player........"
    Now I receive a start button every time Flash Player tried to run. I have enabled my Flash player to automatic, but it seems that this does not work.
    Is there another setting I should look at so that Flash Player opens automatically?

    PS - My puter states that I do not need to download any Flash Player software because Windows 8 already has the software as part on the package and updates automatically.

    Thanx in advance

  • Disable Turbo. Also check if plugins are set to run automatically.

  • Windows 8/8.1 only automatically updates the ActiveX Flash Player for Internet Explorer automatically as part of the operating system.
    If you're using a browser that needs plugins you still have to sort it out yourself.
