Hi Experts,

 

I often do paid surveys to boost my pension however just recently I keep getting messages that I have no 'Flash'.   I went onto the Adobe site to download it for Windows 7 and it reported successful.

However my survey are still telling me to download Flash and I can't find it anywhere on my computer.

 

How do you know if you actually have the flash programme - should I try a further download?

 

I use the Chrome browser.

Hi,

 

You can't/have to install flash for Google Chrome because its already included and is updated when you update Chrome.

 

Check the following instructions https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784 about enabling flash on chrome.

As SleepDude posted the Chrome Browser has flash built in. A separate download is not required. 

 

You can see your downloaded flash install by going to control panel and selecting Large Icons in the dropdown box instead of category view.

Thank you for this information - though don't know why surveys are telling me to install Flash Player?

Is it already installed in IE too?

Not in Windows 7 only on higher Windows versions.

 

When you downloaded flash using Chrome I think it actually downloaded flash for IE.
