Did you install JAVA?
Also, in the strictest sense these will not open for editing but will open and run (if you installed JAVA.) I suggest you head to Ninite.com and install the Java's they have there.
Hello, I've been trying to download and run a file for quite some time now but I've got a problem. It's a .jar file and I have unzipped it already. The file's icon is the internet explorer icon, even though I never use internet explorer and already deleted it off my pc. Opening it greets me with "what do you want to do with (file)," and the options: open, save, and save as. After clicking save, it opens View Downloads - Internet Explorer. I can see my download there with a button saying open. I press the open button and it opens the "what do you want to do with (file)," and the options: open, save, and save as. After this, it takes you back to View Downloads where the cycle repeats until I have 50 of the same download saved in View Downloads that are unable to be opened.
