After installing Windows 8.1 , I have lost Flash Player. Adobe refuses downloading of Flash Player. What to do?
That was BEFORE 8.1.... trust me.
IE for Windows 8 has Flash Player embedded by Microsoft and it has NEVER been downloadable from here. The Flash Player Plug-in (for all other browsers) is downloadable and installable on 8 & 8.1, but it ISN'T the one for Internet Explorer.
Your problem is most likely the fact that Windows 8.1 automatically installs IE11, and it's a "rolling train wreck". Literally thousands of web pages can't recognize the browser, so they don't recognize any of the plugins, like Flash Player. So far, Microsoft has made NO indication that they have any plan to fix it soon.
Microsoft's recommendation is to use Compatibility View for affected pages, and "pretend" you're using an different browser. Trouble with that is it has seen limited success at best, and you have to individually enable it for EVERY page that has problems.
I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.
