I'm working on some java project on Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, version Photon (4.8.0).

Now I need to develop some web page (html, css and javascript).
So I have installed:
- Eclipse Java EE Developer Tools 3.10
- Eclipse Web Developer Tools 3.10
- HTML Editor (WTP)
I restarted Eclipse more than once.
Installation was OK: the extensions appear correctly in Eclipse Marketplace > Installed tab.

But... there is no trace at all of Web Tools in Eclipse.
I looked everywhere:
File > New...
Window > Perspective
Open With...
All the menus are identical as before, simply java oriented.

How can I "activate" the Web Tools?

Check whether a Capabilities preference page exists and has options you need to enable.

Thank you for the suggestion.
Unfortunately in Window > Preferences > General there is no Capabilities page...
Maybe because I have installed Eclipse Platform instead of Eclipse SDK ?
