Enable Java on Google Chrome 42 and higher

Since version 42, Google Chrome requires that you manually enable Java.

Here are the steps to enable it in your Chrome 42+ browser:

  1. Type the following URL in Chrome: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
  2. Click the Enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option.
  3. Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.

    Hello Ms Bromley,

    I double-checked it this morning, and it works.
    Please copy and paste the link, for some reason it won't open if you just click on it.
    You also obviously need to be browsing the link with Google Chrome 42.

    Let me know if you are still struggling with this procedure.
