Microsoft Edge is among the other browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla that are getting rid of Adobe Flash.
Adobe announced a couple years ago that they were planning on removing the Flash software in December 2020. So this news definitely doesn’t come as a surprise.
Colleen Williams, the Senior Program Manager of Microsoft Edge wrote in a blog post on August 30th:
“In the next version of Microsoft Edge (built on Chromium), we will continue to retire Flash in the same timeframe as other Chromium based browsers. You can learn more of that timeline in this blog post. Flash will initially be disabled, and the user will need to re-enable Flash on a site-by-site basis; Flash will be completely removed from the browser towards the end of 2020. Group policies are available for enterprise admins and IT pros to change the Flash behavior prior to that date.”
Microsoft said that they will no longer update or change anything related to Adobe Flash functionality on the browser. You’ll receive permission request notifications at the top left corner of the browser.
