Past releases (CSS5) of Dreamweaver had a quick conversion to HTML 5 from previous versions. I can't find a similar function in Dreamweaver 2020. Can anyone sterer me in the right direction please?

HTML5 code syntax is different from HTML4 and so are the tags.

https://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

 

There hasn't been a plugin yet that could magically convert deprecated HTML4 to valid HTML5 code.  That's a task that requires human intervention.  Or start over with a fresh new HTML5 document.

 

Go to File > New > HTML and hit the Create button.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
</head>

Your video from 2013 is almost as outdated as your code.  That CS5x extension is gone. Adobe pulled it back  when Creative Cloud came out.  Happy coding!

I don't think there's been such a tool in Dreamweaver .... Way back (before Dreamweaver had native support for HTML5 and CSS3 there was A HTML5/CSS3 extension whch added the ability in very old versions of Dreamweaver to create HTML 5 and CCS 3 pages from scratch. But converting an existing page is a different thing.

See here migration info, which may be helpful
