findFile to get a file by name. If the file is in
a subfolder of the project root, you need to specify the full path.
myfile = findFile(proj,"source/timesTableGame.m")
myfile = ProjectFile with properties: Path: "C:\myProjects\examples\TimesTableApp\source\timesTableGame.m" Labels: [1×1 matlab.project.Label] Revision: "734fbb2f815848e22694d9ac7ea28953d5e42635" SourceControlStatus: Unmodified
Alternatively, you can get files by index. Get the first file.
file = proj.Files(1);
Find out what you can do with the file.
