Chrome Browser Settings for Slidebank

For best performance of Slidebank, we recommend using Google Chrome.

As users will know, Slidebank currently uses Flash elements. Google have announced that at the end of 2020, it will no longer support Flash. We have a non-Flash version of Slidebank coming out for general release well ahead of that schedule (more on that here). In the meantime, there are some steps you can take to ensure things continue to run smoothly when using Chrome. 

Whilst Flash is still supported, the browser is starting to require a more manual ‘opt-in’ setting to enable Flash. If you find all is not working as expected, follow these steps and Slidebank will work as normal.

That’s it, you’re done! You might be asked to confirm that Flash is OK the next time you log in, which will put Slidebank on your ‘approved’ list for subsequent visits.
