Hi, I keep getting a notice that flash will no longer be supported as of December. What will I have to do to get flash back?

Nothing you can do, I think. Adobe's reasoning and announcement (they planned this back in 2017) is here. Pretty straightforward.

I would think keeping an older browser for flash stuff might work.....

Im on IE6 for example and flash/java thankfully work fine

Flash effectively dies 5 years ago or more.. Web sites have moved on.. you'll find VERY few which default to using Flash. Most will use HTML5 videos...

what reason do you think you need it today? You most likely do NOT, unless your using something like a 2002 system with IE 6. In which case, you really need to upgrade.

If you are referring to needing the application Flash for development... Your ONLY choice is to already own Flash CS6 (Because finding it for purchase will be difficult)... and then maintaining an operating system that will run CS6 applications.
