Agreed. I found Java easy to master. But I would add a suggestion: If want to master Java, focus on JavaFX. JavaFX makes setting up a good user interface easy.

Oh, by the way: the Kotlin language is very close to Java. Kotlin is gaining popularity. Many large organizations are moving from Java to Kotlin, as it is more modern and very powerful. It is especially popular for developers who write apps for Android devices (such as cell phones)

But: I found Kotlin quite difficult to master. It has a much steeper learning curve than Java.

To do Java (including Java for Windows), I would recommend the IntelliJ IDEA IDE. For Kotlin (especially when writing Android apps) I would recommend the Android Studio IDE. The two IDEs are closely related.

Good Luck!
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
