To download Flash, first you download the installer (which may come on a disk image, in which case you'll have to mount that first). Once you've downloaded it you have to run the installer and then restart your browser.

You need to get Flash Player from here. It;s a pity in a way that it's not longer preinstalled. But it makes sense I suppose-Windows doesn't come with Flash Player pre installed.
