After Google decided to integrate Adobe Flash in Chrome web browser, a lot of My Technology Guide (MTG) readers were asking this question. Everyone wanted to know how they can completely disable flash in Chrome. After a few tinkering with Google Chrome, we finally found the answer. The answer was hidden in Google Chrome’s internal plug-ins page (not the extension manager page). Here’s how you can quickly disable Adobe Flash plugin in Google Chrome web browser.

How To Disable Flash Completely In Google Chrome?

To disable the in-built Flash plugin completely, follow the simple steps below:

  • Open Google Chrome web browser and in a new tab, type chrome://plugins/ and press Enter.
  • Find Adobe Flash Player plugin on Google Chrome’s Plug-ins manager page.

  1. I have an ASUS netbook and it’s awfully slow when browsing. I’m guessing the problem is flash. I’ll disable it per your instructions. I hate to say it, but in this age of lean computing, Steve Jobs is right. Flash is a resource hog.

  2. i hav to do this evry time i trun on my pc? is there permanent solution?

  3. As tito said, you have to do this often! I don’t even have to turn off my PC or even close Chrome! It just automatically re-enables itself whenever it feels like it! And I know instantly, because Flash starts crashing or causing “jerkiness”. I’ve even made myself a bookmark for “about:plugins” because I have to go disable the google flash so often!
    We need a PERMANENT way to disable this, or AT LEAST a way to disable it until the next Chrome update! This is ridiculous!
