Cannot Open .jar Files on windows 10

Opening .Jar files by doubleclicking used to be a breeze, until I updated to Windows 10.  Now when I double click a .jar file, it doesn't open... Yes these are the same exact files that worked on windows 8...  Is there a possible fix?  Do I have to make IE my default browser?

Thanks for any help
