It's not stupid. Don't be afraid to ask.
Anyway, you may have not paid enough attention, but there is a Close option (Ctrl + W / Cmd + W) under the File option (Windows). On Mac, it's under the application name, I guess.
The, you just have to go to File > Open (Ctrl + O / Cmd + O) or Open Recent or double click a .fla in the OS' file explorer or even use the Welcome Screen if you didn't deactive it choosing "Don't show again".
yeah I know but I figured out what I needed to do
For the benefit of future users who may have this problem, it would be beneficial for you to document what you needed to do.
I couldn't figure out how to get back to the templates but I found them by clicking start at the top center of the page
