This post provides a link to a short Youtube video tutorial that I created illustrating the steps necessary to write, compile and run your first Java program called HelloWorld.java on a Windows Computer. In this video I am using Windows 7 but these steps should equally work for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
This video tutorial assumes you have already downloaded and installed the Oracle Java JDK. In the video I use the open source text editor Notepad++. Instructions for downloading and installing Notepad++ are available in a previous post.
