Flash looks like it will really end in a moment. This is coming from Microsoft via its Windows 10 update.
For information, after Adobe stopped support for flash at the end of 2020. Microsoft is still using flash as a component of Windows 10 at least until the 21H1 update that Microsoft will launch some time in the future.
With this update arriving next month, Microsoft is officially removing Flash from Windows 10 components.
Through an update on the Microsoft blog entitled “Update at the end of Adobe Flash Player support life”, it was explained that a component called “Update for Adobe Flash Player removal” will be included in the cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1507 starting July.
Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Embedded 8 Standard will receive this component via a Monthly Rollup and Security Only Update.
Flash itself is an extension that was very popular in use in the late 90s to early 2000s as a multimedia application for browsers and games at that time.
However, this is slowly starting to be replaced with HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly because it is lighter and has a better level of security.
