How to immediately update Flash in Chrome

For years now, the Chrome browser has reported that it was up to date, even when there was an old copy of the Flash Player embedded in the browser.

I mention this now, because Adobe released a new version of the Flash player today, one that fixes 13 bugs, many of them critical. The usual method of forcing a Chrome update (Help -> About Google Chrome) on Windows and OS X/macOS may or may not update Flash. 

You can, however, force Chrome to update Flash by entering 

chrome://components

in the browser address bar. Look for the Adobe Flash Player in the list of components. Ignore the status. If the version is anything other than 24.0.0.221, it needs to be updated.
