No, that's not what i'm saying at all. There's no such file as '140.bin' visible in the navigatable file system of your Garmin. The bin file is a copy of the hidden flash, region 140, which you must make.

I think there is some sort of process to find the 140.bin in my garmin, right?
If you are still not understanding maybe best not to do it. It can't process 3D images anyway. The '3D buildings' aren't true 3D, more like the way a perspective drawing appears on paper but in 2595 will still only appear as 2D outlines on the surface anyway. These things and others might be enlivened in later fw updates by Garmin, but who knows?
And click what I want except the two things the screen shot said not to click and then save in the one file in garmin, right? Will it restart with the new features? But I think you also said I need to do a hard reset before I even start this right and then plug it to my computer? Sorry for all the questions. I am not even sure why I want to do this, I think my garmin has all the features anyway except 3d and 3d terrain which does nothing because of the firmware.
You should try to make the kit up for the experience yourself, but if you aren't confident just extract the attached rar file onto a clean card, insert it, turn on and wait. After it's booted up to the start screen remove the card. On it you will have in the Backup folder a copy of your regions 41 and 140, named 41_backup.bin and 140_backup.bin to keep in a save place. Everything possible will be enabled on your unit but as you're aware maybe not usable because of firmware. Before you do anything though, update the fw if not already v8.20 after you make a full files backup of your new unit. Then after you've flashed the modded 140.bin you can compare the enabled features in the 'before' and 'after' copies of supported_features.html found in .System/Diag/html of the unit.
I've tested it on a 2595LM US/EU before posting it. Here's my before and after supported features:
