I’m guessing you just have to make sure not to press Enter while the cursor is still in the ‘subject’ line. As far as I can tell, once you're typing in the ‘Message’ field, it makes no difference whether you use Enter or Shift-Enter; both merely add a new line break.

If you’re running it on a 64-bits version of Windows (which will most likely be the case), then yes, ZTW64.exe will work just as well as ZTW.exe.

This will be the case already on virtually every Windows computer, so you probably shouldn’t worry about it.

The equivalent of Windows Explorer on Windows 10, is... Windows Explorer. :-)

But like I said, 99 times out of a 100 you won’t need to fiddle with the temp folder settings.
