First of all, before rushing to the download links at the end of the article, you need to understand that you might already be running Java, so the best way would be to first check for that and then install it. Also, Java won’t run in the Modern interface, meaning you won’t be able to verify if you currently have Java installed if you’re not on the Desktop mode. For those who aren’t aware, Java won’t work on Windows RT devices, either.
