Launch Flash without creating a new document.

Step Two

Choose Window > Other Panels > Project.

Step Three

Select your Project name from the pull-down menu at the top of the panel.

Step Four

If the Project doesn't appear in the menu, choose Open Project and navigate to your Project's root folder.

Step Five

The fla files can be opened by double-clicking the name in the Project window.

Where are My Assests?

If you add some additional assets to your project that don't appear in the Project panel, choose Refresh from the pull-down menu in the upper right corner of the panel.
