  1. trying to download something


    you see

    I'm trying to download a animation program called Macromedia Flash (adobe flash player) but idk which site to download it from

    I tried to download it on few sites but it seem to say it was not safe to download or not commonly downloaded since its a exe file

    I'm not sure what to do, where can I safely download it from or just get it at all?

    I use a windows 10 btw​

    :)

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:
