How to Check Your Adobe Flash Version

By Tim Mammadov

Adobe Flash Player is a plug-in for a Web browser that allows users to view video, interactive data and complex graphics without downloading extra software. This product was originally branded Macromedia but later renamed Adobe. It's important to update the player when prompted to keep your browser up to date. You can also check what version you currently have installed on your browser before downloading the update.

Step 1

Start your Web browser.

Step 2

Go to the Adobe Flash Player About Web page (see Resources).

Step 3

Look for your Adobe Flash Version number in the "Version Information" box.
