Disable flash video with Toggle flash
There is a free add-on available that can block or enable flash by creating a button in the Internet Explorer command bar called Toggle Flash. The only thing I don’t like about this add-on is there isn’t a way to tell by looking at the button if flash video is blocked. You have to look at the webpage to verify flash videos have been stopped.
1: Open Internet Explorer and click the following link to take you to the Toggle Flash add-on download page -. Toggle Flash.
2: Click the download link. A window will appear, click “Run”.
3: Follow the instructions in the setup window to complete the installation.
4: Next we have to add the Toggle Flash button to the command bar.
5: Move the mouse cursor over any toolbar under the address bar and right click to bring up the toolbar menu.
6: Move the cursor over the word “Customize” at the bottom of the toolbar menu.
7: Another menu pops up. Left click “Add or remove commands…” at the bottom of the new menu.
8: The Customize Toolbar window appears (shown below). 9: Scroll up or down under “Available toolbar buttons” and locate the Toggle Flash button.
9: Left click the Toggle Flash button to highlight it then left the the “Add->” button to add the Toggle Flash button to the current toolbar buttons menu.
10: Click the close button. You may have to move the mouse cursor over the command bar separator and slide it left to see the newly added Toggle Flash button.
