Java, Chrome and Windows 10

  Phil_Clark 20:49 25 Sep 2018

Hello

I will start with an apology because I am a complete beginner with Java.

It looks as if my Windows 10 computer does not have Java installed, and I have just downloaded but not yet installed the latest version of 64-bit Java for Windows.

From what I can see, Chrome does not use Java, so if I install Java will it automatically interact with Chrome and cause problems in any way? I plan to have Java programs working just on my computer and not interacting with the Internet at all.

Many thanks.

No, it won't.

For added security and peace of mind, head over to Control Panel -> Java -> "Security" tab -> make sure that "Enable Java content in the browser" is NOT ticked.

PS: Govan1x, JavaScript is something completely different.
