Enable Java in 32-bit Chrome

“Chrome does not support Java 7. Java 7 runs only on 64-bit browsers and Chrome is a 32-bit browser.” I know many people have been annoyed with this message. At our workplace we use java for many things and most of us prefer Chrome. There are two solutions for this. Use another browser or try this:

1. Open a terminal and type these three commands and press enter:

1. sudo mkdir -p /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/disabled

2. sudo mv  /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/disabled

3. sudo ln -s /System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle/Contents/Resources/JavaPlugin2_NPAPI.plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin
Have you already done this once before and this time it’s not working/you are getting errors?
You might need to add this command between commands 1 and 2
sudo rm -r /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/disabled/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin
2. Restart your Chrome browser and try whatever you wanted to do, again.
Done!
