How to Uninstall Flash in Opera


Flash can be both a nuisance and a security risk, slowing down your Web browser and displaying annoying advertisements with both animation and speech. Because plug-ins such as Flash are installed systemwide, they cannot be uninstalled for just a single browser such as Opera. Instead, using Opera's Preferences menu, you can disable the Flash plug-in and, even better, control which Flash videos play. This advanced control gives you both added security and the freedom to quickly load websites with Flash content.

  • Launch "Opera." Click the "Menu" button in the upper left, highlight "Settings" and then click "Preferences." Optionally, press the "Ctrl" and "F12" keys simultaneously.

  • Click the "Advanced" tab, then click the "Content" option on the left.

  • Click "Enable Plug-ins Only on Demand" to enable optional plug-in running, or click "Disable Plug-ins" to completely disable the plug-ins in your browser.

Tips & Warnings

  • Disabling plug-ins entirely will also disabled additional plug-ins such as Java and Google Talk. If you frequently use Java-based Web applets, then you may want to choose the on-demand option so you can quickly enable Java support on those websites.
