Cannot Find the Adobe Flash Player I Downloaded

I downloaded the adobe flash player and now I can't find it. It is installed, but I can't run it. When I type in the magic words in the terminal, it says that the file or directory can't be found. I tried locating it in the file browser and using the terminal. Can anyone help me?

Look at your web browser's preferences. The download location should be listed there.

It is installed, but I can't run it.
This statement doesn't make sense. Adobe Flash Player is a plugin. It will run when you browse a page with Flash content. If you can not find the download, how did it get installed?

What web browser are you using? What distro are you running?

Which distribution are you using? Often, flash can be downloaded directly from the software repositories. That would be more convenient than doing all that stuff manually.
