 +Chrome does not like Flash because of the major security flaws inherent in Flash and therefore does everything in its power to force you not to use Flash. The only problem is there are still a lot of sites that use Flash. None of the major sites you visit every day like Facebook, Instagram, etc. use it, but a lot of smaller and older sites just haven’t bothered to switch to HTML 5.
  
-When the computers were imaged in July they got what at that time, was the latest version of flash. Version 25.0.0.148 is what is on your computer and should be sufficient for any flash needs. However, unfortunately Chrome does not like Flash because of the major security flaws inherent in Flash and therefore does everything in its power to force you not to use Flash. The only problem is there are still a lot of sites that use Flash. None of the major sites you visit every day like Facebook, Instagram, etc. use it, but a lot of smaller and older sites just haven’t bothered to switch to HTML 5. If you do a quick Google search for enabling Flash in Chrome, you’ll see a lot of articles telling you to download Flash from Adobe’s website and install it (which won’t work) or to open a Chrome tab and go to chrome://plugins (which also won’t work anymore); however, we have discovered a couple work-arounds that can get you past it. One of these options should get you going. //+{{tag>​Adobe ​flash flash_player player ​chrome}}
