I bought a Windows 10 phone to demo our apps, but first I need to download and install some safe, generic .exe files that run on every Win10 device I've ever used--including the Win10 laptop I'm using right now.  But on this phone, they will download using Edge, but when I go to open the .exe, it will say "This kind of file won't open on your phone."  How can I run them?  TIA
