This page requires the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player.

Download it now.

Use the Global Notification Settings panel to set notifications of updates in Macromedia Flash Player:

  • If you want Macromedia to automatically notify you when a new version of Flash Player is available, select Notify Me When an Update Is Available. From the pop-up menu, select how frequently you want Flash Player to check for updates. The default selection is 30 days.

    When an update is available, the Macromedia Flash Player icon appears in the system tray of your computer, near the clock. Click the icon and the Flash Player Update dialog box appears; it gives you the option to install now, install later, or open the Global Notification Settings panel to change your notification settings.
  • If you don't want Macromedia to automatically notify you when a new version of Flash Player is available, deselect Notify Me When an Update Is Available.

Note: Macromedia can check for updates and notify you only when Flash Player is running and when you're connected to the Internet.
