I am using the most recent version of Adobe Animate (2023) and when I publish an swf file, it does not have the correct file icon in the file explorer due to not having a file association. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Associate the .swf extension to the Flash Player that comes with Animate. Here's where it's located on Windows:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Animate 2023\Players\FlashPlayer.exe
