  • Hi,

    Have you tried open this link using another browser?
    According yo my research, Edge does not support plug-ins, so it will nor run Java. Please try another browser to have a test.

    Will Java run in my browser on Windows 10?
    Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox will continue to run Java on Windows 10. The Edge browser does not support plug-ins and therefore will not run Java.
