Flash Player is a browser add-on, not an executable program - you won't find it under your installed programs or the Start menu.
What browser are you using?
Ive tried Firefox, Chrome and IE. One of the fixes I saw on a thread was to right click on the Flash Player and complete some actions, so I was looking for the program to try this. I'm guessing the actions are under the plug in on the browser I'm using. Does this sound right?
Here are some basic information:
- Flash Player on Internet Explorer on Windows 8 comes preinstalled by Microsoft
- Flash Player is also preinstalled in Chrome
- for Firefox you need to install the Flash Player plugin manually: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player.exe
Make sure that the Shockwave Flash plugin/add-on is enabled in all browsers.
