Following are the steps to Download & Install Java JDK in windows:

1. Access in any browser in order to download the latest version but as I mentioned above, in this particular post, we are going to download JDK version 8, in order to do so, click this link.

2. JAVA SE Download page will open as shown in the below screenshot:


4. Select the ‘Accept License Agreement’ radio button and click the JDK version you want to download. Here I am giving example for Windows machine so I would choose the JDK that’s available for windows in above list. But, one more thing to notice is, you would find two versions of windows JDK over there, one is 32 bit(x86) and another is 64 bit(x64). Now choose the appropriate option as per your system configuration, if you are running a 32-bit version of windows then download x86 version of JDK otherwise if you have the 64-bit version of windows then download x64 version of JDK. Look at below screenshot.


5.  Once JDK downloaded, run the .exe installer to install it on your machine.

6. In order to make sure, if it successfully installed or not, open the Control panel > Programs and Features. and Look for Java over there, if it successfully installed, you would be able to find the entry there OR you can also simply check by looking java folder inside C:/Program Files (x86) (if you installed 32 version of JDK) otherwise look inside C:/Program Files in a 64-bit machine.

That’s it, it’s that simple to download & install Java in windows 🙂
