Which Chrome version are you using? The latest version of chrome comes with latest version Flash. If you are using some ancient version then update it to latest version. – Saurav Kumar Oct 14 '13 at 22:37

I already have it. – user194862 Oct 14 '13 at 23:11

Yes. Currently it is possible but it may not be possible in future versions of Google Chrome. For now,

  • Type about:plugins in the address bar and hit Enter
  • Look near the top right of the page that opens for a small blue + sign next to the word "Details".
  • Toggle that to expand the contents of the page
  • Look for Adobe Flash Player. You should see two versions of the plug-in.
  • Disable the one I've highlighted.

From now on, the browser will only use the plug-in you have not disabled.

Two Adobe Flash Player plug-ins
