Access content settings

As Chrome has its own built-in version of Flash, you don't need to install a plugin or anything.

And the easiest way to get into Chrome's settings is by visiting chrome://settings/content. Once you're there, scroll down until you see the option for Flash player:

Scroll down to Flash, right below JavaScript

Allow Flash to run

Click on "Flash" and, where it says "Block sites from running Flash (recommended)", toggle the switch on. It'll now say "Ask first":

Flash will ask whether you want to allow it to run

Now, when you go to a site that uses flash, it'll ask you whether you want to allow Flash to do its thing. Always good to double check.

How to give specific sites permission to run Flash

Now that you've given Chrome permission to ask for your permission to run sites with Flash (whew), you need to tell it which sites to allow.

Go to your favorite Flash-using site

Update its Flash settings

Click it, and then select "Site settings" at the bottom:


his will bring you to a menu with a number of options. Partway down you'll see Flash. To the right, you'll see a dropdown that says "Block."

To allow Flash, you must click that dropdown menu and select "Allow" instead:

Find the Flash setting and select "Allow"

Now if you go check your general Flash settings again in Chrome, you'll see that site on your "allowed" list:

Go back to the site and reload the page. All that Flash content will be flashing away.
