How to find your version of Flash

I'm not entirely sure how this works on a Mac, but I searched for "Flash Player", and moused over it when it came up. It says the company, version, and date modified. Hope that helps! cash money tc 21:59, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, ColdReactive. I have already found what I need for today, but I will remember that page for future use. (I visit Newgrounds quite frequently.) Shine Sprite (complain) 00:38, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

My joke was very last minute. I was using a computer I am unfamiliar with while putting my idea into effect. I was trying to replace the characters with the boxes, but I just couldn't find out how to do so. Shine Sprite (complain) 03:13, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
