Recommended Posts

So when you install new clients for minecraft (like forge (for mods)) you have to run a .jar file to get the version installed, now i accidently clicked 'open with' and 'notepad', and it didnt let me run it, so i installed jave thinking that would do it but now it shows up as a notepad file when i download it, does anyone know what i could do ???

Win10

Click on the start and search for Default Programs

 

There should be an option for "default Apps for file type"

 

You should look for the .jar and change the application

Once you click Chose Another App then scroll down and click More Apps in the pictures I showed you.

You then need to browse to find the Java program in either C:\Program Files    -OR- C:\Program Files (x86)

and find 'java.exe' and select that

Ok i have managed to get confused so below is the vid i'm trying to follow, when he downloads it the icon is the java logo and when he double click it runs the .jar but when i do it, it has the internet explorer icon and when i double click it opens internet explorer and has a buggy mess

So right click on the .jar file > Open With > Chose another app > Scroll down and find More Apps and click on that. At this point it MIGHT populate with extra apps so scroll down again and see if it says Look for another app on this PC and click that. It should be in blue at the bottom.

 

At this point you'll see something like this:

From here, in the address bar go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\

Then find the latest jre folder which should be jre1.8.0_221 or similar. Click to enter that folder and then open the bin folder and you should see a 'java.exe' file in there that's about 180KB or so

Select java.exe and then click Open and it should open the app with java

If you couldn't tell already I'm not very competent when it comes to the software kind of things as a vast amount of my knowledge is on hardware
