Sounds like you are ready to explore a hex editor. You should try that next.

You're better off downloading a hex editor and opening the .exe or any other file that way.

better of using linux and forgetting .exe all together ;)

In serious though, knowing how to open diffrent file types in notepad is a useful skill... I'd have gone for a bitmap myself since it acutally contains meaningful data... but still worth knowing
