According to a plan long thought out by manufacturers, with the onset of 2021, support for Adobe Flash Player was finally discontinued. This means that Adobe has officially stopped distributing Flash Player and its updates, and browser developers have stopped supporting Flash plugins. In addition, an emergency “switch” was introduced into the Flash Player code in advance, which prevents the launch of any Flash content, starting from January 12, 2021.
Last year, in preparation for the final end of support for Flash Player, Microsoft created update KB4577586 to remove Adobe Flash from all versions of Windows 8, 10 and Windows Server and prevent it from being reinstalled.
Then the update was only available through official catalog and it could not be removed after installation. However, the update was optional, although it was forcibly rolled out to some Windows 10 machines in February.
In general, the company promised that in early 2021 this update will be distributed via WSUS and Windows Update and will be made mandatory. Now the Microsoft blog has appeared message, which reveals further plans for KB4577586.
Starting June 2021, Microsoft plans to include KB4577586 as part of optional Windows 10 cumulative preview updates for Windows 10 1809 and later. In July, KB4577586 will be included in the required cumulative update packages for Windows 10 1507 and later, as well as in Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard.
It also became known that in Windows 21H1, the preview version of which will become public this month, the KB4577586 update will be installed automatically, that is, the Adobe Flash Player plugin will be automatically removed.
It is unlikely that the final removal of Flash Player will be noticed by users, because already now it is practically useless and cannot be used to display content.
