Open Java Control Panel Settings from CMD (Windows)

There is a strange bug on Windows 10 / Server 2016 where, after installing Java, one can’t find Java in the start menu.

As a a workaround, or if you need to launch the Java Control Panel from a script or for other reasons, follow the steps below.

Open Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd)

Copy the following into the command line, including quotes:

“c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javacpl.exe”

If the path is not found, navigate manually to c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\ and find the .exe within the version folder you have installed.
