Adobe Flash is no longer displayed. Google has hit another nail in the coffin with Chrome 76, which by default blocks all Flash content on websites. If you continue to use Flash, you can turn it back on for the time being, which makes Chrome annoying.
Flash will no longer appear at the end of 2020.
Flash is not completely removed. Instead, Chrome Flash blocks by default with the message "Flash has been blocked on this page." If you re-enable Flash in Chrome, the message "Flash Player will no longer be supported after December 2020" will be displayed with a flash-off button.
As Google explains, the countdown continues until the end of Flash when the ball falls on New Year's Eve 2020.
This is not just a Google Chrome issue. Adobe will discontinue support for Flash in late 2020. Mozilla is even more aggressive: In early 2020, Flash support will be completely removed.
If you use Flash, you have almost a year and a half to go before it's over. Chrome's increasingly aggressive steps are designed to encourage websites to move away from Flash while they still have time.

How to Run Flash on a Website
When you visit a website that uses Flash, it will appear right in the omnibox or address bar of Chrome displays the message "Plugin blocked".
To enable Flash for the site Click the lock icon on the left side of the Omnibox (address bar), click the "Flash" box and then "Allow".
Chrome prompts you to reload the page. Click on "Reload".
Even after reloading the page, no Flash content is loaded. You must click on it to load it.
To run a single Flash object, click the Play button. To run all Flash objects on the page, including any hidden Flash objects running in the background, click the blocked plugin icon to the right of the omnibox and click Run Flash This Time.
If you allow Flash for a site, it will be added to the Approval List. Click on the icon for the blocked plug-in and then on "Manage". Alternatively, you can call page
chrome: // settings / content / flash to view it.
The bad news: When you restart your browser, Chrome deletes this list. If you frequently use Flash on a particular website, you will need to do this repeatedly. Google seriously wants Chrome users to stop using Flash. Therefore, the flash process is intentionally annoying.
Enable Click-to-Play Flash
Instead of stopping Chrome Flash on all websites automatically, you can set Chrome to ask before viewing Flash content. (No, Chrome can no longer play Flash automatically.)
Unlike the above, Chrome saves this setting. However, every time you open your browser again, the "Flash Player will no longer be supported after December 2020" banner will be displayed. There is no way to disable this message without disabling Flash.
If Flash is blocked, click the blocked plug-ins icon in the Chrome omnibox, and then click Manage. This will take you to the Flash Settings page, which you can also access through Settings> Advanced> Privacy & Security> Site Settings> Flash.
. Block the execution of Flash on websites (recommended).
If you are visiting a Flash Web site now, you can click on a Flash object on the Web page and click "Allow" to see it.
. You still need to click to play the Flash content afterwards. However, it is more streamlined than clicking the lock icon to open the website's settings menu.
Of course, Flash will not completely disappear by the end of 2020. Old browsers such as Internet Explorer still support old versions of the Flash plug-in. It should be possible to run Flash content when you really need it, but the plug-in will no longer be updated with security updates.
