The Java SDK is not a program you run from the desktop, it is a collection of programs such as the compiler and the Java runtime engine.

Your installed directory should contain a README.html - start there.

BTW, CarefullyChooseOneForum while posting.
This belongs more to a Java In General(Beginners) forum.

Now you have arrived in beginner's, welcome ( ) and read these sections of the Java Tutorials, noting the "common problems" section for when things go wrong.
I presume you have got the JDK installed already.

In addition to what the Tutorials say: it is probably a good idea to make a "java" folder somewhere and keep your programs in that. Notepad isn't very good for programming; Notepad++ and Notepad2 are much better.
