This is easy. Unlike windows, Linux does not make your files executable if the name suffix is something like ".run" or ".exe". The Linux filesystems stores this information in a special place is the filesystem entry. You can make any file executable by opening terminal (command prompt) and by giving command:

chmod u+x path/to/my/own/executable-file.something

After that, double-clicking the file in file manager will execute the file.
