Chrome - Enabling Java Plugin

As of September 1st 2015, Chrome no longer supports the NPAPI plugin.

Chrome 42, which was released April 2015, has blocked the Java plugin. This will prevent any Java from displaying correctly on a webpage. However using the configuration step described below, the Java plugin can be enabled in Chrome. Please see Java's FAQ for more information.

Before enabling Chrome's Java plugin, make sure you have already installed Java onto your machine: Windows - Installing Java

    1. Start Google Chrome and in your URL bar navigate to: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

      Once on the configuration page click the Enable link located in the NPAPI configuration section.


    1. Once you've enabled NPAPI go ahead and restart Chrome
