Detect older versions (8u20 and later versions). Starting with Java 8 Update 20 (8u20), on Windows systems, the Java Uninstall Tool is integrated with the installer to provide an option to remove older versions of Java from the system. The change is applicable to 32 bit and 64 bit Windows platforms.


Notifications about disabled Java and restoring prompts

The installer notifies you if Java content is disabled in web browsers, and provides instructions for enabling it. If you previously chose to hide some of the security prompts for applets and Java Web Start applications, the installer provides an option for restoring the prompts. The installer may ask you to reboot your computer if you chose not to restart an internet browser when it prompted you to do so.

Test Installation

To test that Java is installed and working properly on your computer, run this test applet.

NOTE: You may need to restart (close and re-open) your browser to enable the Java installation in your browser.
