I know I downloaded java for windows 10 but that is not an ide/editor where I can type "hello world", "for loops", "while loops"

Using windows 10
how can I download a simple ide or code editor for java.


Looking to learn java.
I dont need to learn advanced features.
I am a java beginner.

Well, a really good editor is Notepad++: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
For a full IDE, have a look at Visual Studio Code and the Java plugins:

+1 on notepad++.  Great place to start.

But if you want a really good IDE the most popular one today is InteliJ (Idea) from Jetbrains:

The community edition is free and completely fine for what you need.

Eclipse is another option you could use.  It is a pretty good editor for being free.
