Microsoft announced last month their plans to remove Adobe Flash from Windows 10. This comes as no shock to users, as it was shared back in 2017 of July that End of Support for Adobe was ending at the end of 2020.
Old Windows versions that users still utilize will receive the same update later this year to remove Adobe from its OS. Keep an eye out!
