PowerShot SX530 HS - Flash Question

[ Edited ]

So I've been trying to figure out the flash on the my PowerShot SX530 HS. I found where to change it between Off and Auto. But is there a way to turn it on permanently? In other words, is there a way to force the flash to take place? I've been in some situations where I needed/wanted to use flash, but when in Auto mode, my camera simply decided a flash wasn't needed so I was not able to use the flash for certain situations where I wanted it. 


So once again - is there a way to force the flash to happen with this camera?
