i have windows 8 on a Toshiba laptop.
i use Internet Explorer for my browser
On Windows 8, Flash Player is updated by Microsoft through windows update. So kindly update your windows to get the Latest version of flash player for your IE browser.
Flash Player Update can also be downloaded from Flash Player Issues | Windows 8 Page under 'Update Internet Explorer to get latest version of Flash Player' section.
Hope this solves your problem. Kindly let us know if the Issue still persists.
In Internet Explorer on Windows 8 and higher, Flash Player is a built-in component of the browser. There is no separate product to install or download. It's just part of IE, and updates come through Windows Update.
Here's my guess about what's going on.
Let me know if I'm missing something:
You have a new Windows machine, You're going to your favorite website, and it's telling you that Flash Player is not installed.
If that's the case, the following should help:
First, confirm that ActiveX Filtering is configured to allow Flash content:
You can try to work around these issues by using Compatibility View:
If that is too inconvenient, using Google Chrome may be a preferable alternative.
If you went further and followed the instructions about how to manually remove Flash Player from older windows systems to try and "fix" the website problem above, you've damaged your Internet Explorer installation. The best way to get back to a good state is to remove the last Internet Explorer update from your machine, then re-apply it by running Windows Update again. You should end back up with an in-tact IE and Flash installation.
