Adobe Flash not working with Windows 8

Nov 11, 2012 11:49 PM

I recently updated from Windows 7 to Windows 8. When I open up the app for Internet Explorer in Windows 8, it tells me that I have Adobe Flash Player installed, but if I try to see a video on YouTube, it tells me that I have to install Adobe Flash Player!!! If I go to Amazon Cloud Player, it tells me that I have to install Adobe Flash Player to upload any files to my cloud. All this while still using the app for Internet Explorer in Windows 8. (As I mentioned, I have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed version 11. something - I can't reember all the numbers that follow.  I can't clear my cache or do any of the other things Adobe suggests, as none of the browsers now work in the Desktop - the only Browsers working are the IE and Google apps, and none of these two allow me to clear cache etc.) Any suggestions.? My computer I just bought 1 year ago and all worked well before upgrading to Windows 8. It is all so frustrating!!!!

Thanks to anyone who can help me.

    Windows 8 comes with Flash Player preinstalled in Internet Explorer 10.  Use Windows Update to update Flash Player to the latest version.


    I do not have Windows 8 (and have no plans to ever have it), so I do not know any details..  Something I read around here is that you need to open IE from the desktop in order to have Flash working.
