I've had Java installed on my PCs for decades. But I'm wondering if it actually does anything. If not I'll probably uninstall it.

I've just switched on the 'Enable logging' option via Settings > Control Panel > Java

But on trying to access the log file at
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\log
I got the message:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

However, using an elevated command prompt I was able to use dir *.* which reports no files in that folder.

So, my question : is there a way to trigger some (trivial) Java activity so that I can test I can access it in future?

Terry I uninstalled Java years ago, I don't believe that Windows 10 has any reliance on Java.
You can always uninstall-reinstall if you should find a program that requires it.
