I'm attempting to open an executable file for a productivity program (a desktop sticky note) from snapfiles.com.  I downloaded the executable file to my desktop.  But when I attempt to open/run the file, an OPEN WITH...dialog box pops up asking me to select the program I want to open the file with.  How do I open/run the file?  See attachments.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

stickies_setup_7_1e_exe, the name suggests it may be an application installer, which means you may have never installed the application on your workstation.

Rename stickies_setup_7_1e_exe to stickies_setup_7_1e.exe (last 4th character from an underbar to a decimal), and double-click on it to install the application (the installer should configure any file-associations used by the application).

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

Question has a verified solution.
