Java on Windows 10 Version Check

Finally, we have to check if java is installed properly or not. We can do that by using the java -version command in the command prompt, as shown below the image.

Note: In older java versions and other windows operating systems, you need to set up two environment variables to get it working.

Go to System Properties (Right Click on My Computer and select Properties) > Advanced > Environment Variables.

In the popup window, System variables section, click on New button and add a variable with the following details:


Value: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_211


After this, you need to edit the Path variable already present there. Just select the Path variable and click on the Edit button. In the popup window value section, go to the end and add the following ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_25\bin (The colon is used as a delimiter, so don’t miss that!)

Now your setup is done and you can check it by opening a command prompt and running command java - version.

In Windows 10 and Java 9, we don’t need to do these manually. Java installer takes care of that and you can check the environment variable Path value, as explained in the below image. Note that we don’t need to set the JAVA_HOME variable.

This is an optional step but highly recommended. If you want to get things done easily, you should install either Eclipse, Intellij Idea, or NetBeans IDE that helps a lot in the development of Java programs. Just download and install it with an executable file, they are straightforward.

That’s all for downloading and Java installation on windows 10. Let me know if you face any issues in setting up the environment.
