Adobe recently stopped the Flash Player plugin support. The company said that it will start blocking content running on it.

According to the reports, Windows is finally rolling out an update to remove the Adobe Flash Player installed on the OS permanently. Microsoft is rolling out the update to Windows 10 devices running on version 20H2, 2004, and older.

However, you can back up the whole Windows version to a specific Restore Point that you have created previously to get it back. Microsoft said you can also try reinstalling windows except for this patch to retain the Flash Player.

Also, do note that the Flash Player installed manually won’t get removed with this update. Only that installed on Microsoft’s OS (incl. Edge) will get wiped. If you have a browser plugin on any other third-party browser (not Chrome, Firefox as they removed it too), you will be able to use it.
