Trying to install Java, but it doesn't work?

So, I am learning Java from w3schools and I am trying to follow their steps to downloading Java. I went to the Oracle website and picked the Windows x64 installer. I installed it. I then I try to make a path Java. I then went to the cmd.exe and typed in Java and it gives me this super long text which probably means it didn't work. Please help my problem.

'folder' or directory - the place where you have your files or source codes on harddisk I listed example of commands you need to run java code file in cmd so just copy it to cmd by lines

Download for example Eclipse, you can find some IDEs here https://blog.idrsolutions.com/2015/03/the-top-11-free-ide-for-java-coding-development-programming/ Then download Java JDK if you havent, when that done then its time to set the path follow these steps https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/set-temporary-permanent-paths-java/ Then you can start coding
