Microsoft Edge will block Flash contents with Windows 10 Creators Update

Microsoft Edge will start automatically blocking Flash contents with the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update. The users will manually need to allow Flash to run with a new “click-to-run” prompt.

Microsoft official post:

Sites that support HTML5 will default to a clean HTML5 experience. In these cases, Flash will not even be loaded, improving performance, battery life, and security. For sites that still depend on Flash, users will have the opportunity to decide whether they want Flash to load and run, and this preference can be remembered for subsequent visits.

These new changes will give users more control over the security of their browser. Recently, Google, Apple and Mozilla are all started blocking Fash contents. This Edge update will release with the Creators Update, but Insider members will soon get a chance to try it out in upcoming preview builds.
