I've started to notice that my Flash player is not working on my Windows 10 laptop (specifically YouTube videos). It just continues to load and load to no avail. I went ahead and uninstalled / reinstalled Flash but that didn't work. It's happening in all of my browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox and and Edge. What can I do?

I know Flash is on it’s way out. Make sure you have the latest version and check to see if it’s been disabled by your browser.

Here is a summary of the article

Adobe will finally kill Flash in 2020.
Adobe is finally planning to kill off Flash once and for all. Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Safari have all been blocking Flash over the past year, but Adobe is now planning to remove support for it fully by the end of 2020.

    For Edge browser, open Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced tab. Here under Accelerated Graphics check the box like, "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering". Next restart the laptop if asks. Sometimes, ActiveX Filter may an issue. Open Edge, tab on the Tools button. Next move to Safety in scroll down Menu. There is ActiveX Filter, just uncheck the checkbox mark next to ActiveX Filtering.
