Went through all the steps, downloaded the new version, finished the install, but can't figure out how to activate Flash within Chrome. All help appreciated.
Chrome embeds Flash Player, there's no need to install the separate Flash Player PPAPI plugin.
Chrome also disables Flash by default, forcing users to enable it, usually on a per-site basis. see Use or fix Flash audio & video - Computer - Google Chrome Help for assistance.
