Hello and thank you in advance for reading my message. I recently installed Google Chrome and am having issues with FlashPlayer. I can get YouTube videos to run fine but other videos, such as on Facebook, gives me the message "Flash Player upgrade required
You must download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player to view this content."

I googled how to install Flash for Chrome but the instructions I found told me to put the DLed files into a particular folder and I could not find the folder... AND they also posted a test video to see if Flash worked after moving the files and the video ran fine for me even before DLing anything.

How can I fix this issue? TY

The path to the folder you cannot find applies only to Windows XP.
The path to that folder in Windows Vista is different.
C:\Users\[Your User Account Name\AppData\Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/

Additionally, the 'Application' Data folder (XP) or 'AppData' folder (Vista) is hidden.

In order to see it you need to change a setting in the 'View' options. This applies to both XP and Vista:

1. Open Control Panel and change it to 'Classic View'.
2. Click 'Folder Options'
3. Click the 'View' tab.
4. Under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show hidden files and folders"
5. Click [OK]
