I ask because now unsure if anything special to know, although I was advised what to do if in Windows Vista. I now wonder if there is anything new or different, about updating JAVA for Windows 10 compared to Windows Vista.
The new, two-month old computer here with Windows 10 (a desktop type) is showing an icon in the task tray indicating a JAVA update is available. Looking through Control Panel, the version present on the computer currently is version 8 update 73. I used to know for Vista purposes, to go to the Oracle or JAVA website, look at a list of downloadable JAVA installers, pick the offline version of the installer I wanted, and then I would:
- Download the installer to the desktop
- Uninstall the currently installed JAVA
- Restart the computer
- Run the installer for the new JAVA
- Restart the computer again
- And that would be the finish.
Is anything different about this for Windows 10? How do I know which version to pick to download? Do I pick for 32-bit or for 64-bit? The computer is 64-bit type but in the File Explorer, there is a Program Files folder, and also a Program Files (x86) folder, too.
