I have an existing web site that has swf files which are no longer supported. I have downloaded all the files from the site, and am trying to replace. I have tried adobe animate, and created a new swf file? byt it only plays in animate. When I try to drag it ibto DW it does go, or if I double click, it cannot be opened in ms edgr browser. I am stumped, and frustrated. Any suggestions as to how to fix this, and any good instruction manuals. Mine are to old.

Flash is officially dead: https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html
Browsers no longer ship with a way to render .swf files and Adobe no longer makes a plug-in for them.
You'll need to convert your Flash files to HTML 5 Canvas: https://helpx.adobe.com/animate/how-to/convert-flash-ads-to-html5.html

Adobe gave Flash content developers 3-1/2 years advanced notice that Flash Player was ending in December 2020. I think it's probably fair to say that nobody has been able to view your SWF content for several months if not longer.
The original announcement from July 2017:
If it's just video and you have the native media file, convert it to MP4 with Adobe Media Encoder or open source Handbrake and use the HTML <video> tag which all browsers support. No special players or plugins needed.
<h1>The video element</h1>
<video controls poster="folder_name/your_poster_frame.jpg">
<source src="folder_name/your_video_file.mp4" type="video/mp4">
Hope that helps.
