I have downloaded a .swf file to my computer, and I cannot open it. I've tried to install Flash Player to my computer, but every time the installation delete its self. I tried to install to google crome, but the file does not open in crome. There is no supported app for .swf files on my computer. I have windows 10.

Does anyone know how to do?

The answer depends on what you're trying to accomplish. 

If you're trying to run a SWF locally like a standalone application, the Flash Player Projector should do it:

Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads

If you're trying to run it locally in a web browser, using a local webserver (e.g MAMP/WAMP/XAMP/IIS) is the way to go.  A Google search should turn up some good getting started tutorials on that front.
