If you are on an older version of Chrome, such as Chrome 49 which is the latest on Windows XP or Vista, or Mac Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion, right click on the puzzle icon and click Run this plugin. Please note, we no longer support these operating systems, so we cannot guarantee the games will run smoothly. See our supported systems.

Still having trouble loading games with Flash enabled?

If you have further trouble, please try using Lumosity in an Incognito Window, which will have any Flash-blocking extensions disabled. To open Chrome in Incognito mode:

1. At the top right, click More More

2. Select New Incognito Window. A new window will open with a gray incognito icon Incognito mode.

3. In the Incognito Window, type in and log into your account and try loading the games. You can also use a keyboard shortcut to open an Incognito Window. Press Ctrl + Shift + N (Windows) or ⌘ + Shift + N (Mac).

You may also try reinstalling Chrome. See instructions.
