Hi michael_so_fl,

Are you in Desktop mode ?? Java will only work in Desktop mode in Windows 8 not in Start screen.

Microsoft Windows 8 does not support plug-ins in the Start screen and therefore Java will not run in the Start screen. You will have to switch to the Desktop screen to run Java.

Joe, This is all new to me, could you be more specific. This windows 8 is baffling to me, I'm upset at losing outlook express also. My computer shows I loaded the latest Java updates, thanks for your help. Mike

RE: Yahoo games Windows 8

I can't be more specific. I don't use Windows 8. My information came from a search,

My next search in Google would be Using java games win 8

I'm sure others will be along who may have experience.

RE: Yahoo games Windows 8

Are Yahoo games run from your browser? If so, which one are you using? Internet Explorer 11 gives me a 'server hangup' error when I clicked on a couple of free yahoo games. I'm on Windows 8.1. Can you provide a link to the games?
