Java In Windows 10

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Using The Internet, Windows 10

In response to our article “Can I Play Pogo Games In Windows 10,” Karen wrote: “Certain games on Pogo cannot be played (like Bridge and Dice City Roller) because Windows 10 does not allow you to use Java which certain Pogo games require. Believe I find this frustrating. Even the Geek Squad said their is no way to fix the problem since I bought a new computer that doesn’t have any older windows programs on it.’


Karen, it’s not true that you can’t use Java in Windows 10. Microsoft Edge does not support Java. But you can still use Java with the Internet Explorer browser.  Internet Explorer is included as Part of Windows 10. Just type Internet Explorer in the search box and click on the result.

You can also use it with the Firefox Browser, as long as you enable it. However, the Chrome browser no long supports Java. That has nothing to do with Windows 10, it was a decision by chrome.

    Java in Windows 10 is still working for me on
    Chrome and Torch with the Pogo Java games. there is still a warning that it soon won’t be supported, but not yet.

    Cynthia, you seem to have left out the mistake made by Karen. (Even the Geek Squad said). The majority of the geek squad don’t have a actual clue how to fix a computer, It’s either replace or reload the os, and I bet she paid a ridiculous fee too them for just telling her that.

    Oh Contrair mon frair! Google Chrome for windows does allow for both Java and JavaScript. If not I wouldn’t be able to play Facebook games and I can so do it! However Google Chrome does not automatically update Java as it did before. When you start seeing errors you have to do the update yourself. You can also use McAfee which has an add on that will tell you when Java and other applications need to be updated.
