Working with Oracle SQL Developer 4.1.1 in Windows 10 - Part 1

In the previous post the details of downloading the free Oracle SQL Developer 4.1.1 and the Java SDK8 were described for a Windows 10 on a x32bit machine. As to requirements please refer to
this link. Although Windows 10 is not in the list of OSs, it seems to work without a problem, at least so far.
