    I want to modify built-in News module in Sitefinity 6.2, for example I want to access these files:

     ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/News/ControlPanelInsert.ascx and~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/News/ControlPanelEdit.ascx

     But I can't find it in my source code.
    Pls let me know where I can find it. I use SF 6.2 trial version.
    Pls let me know if I buy license, will I have all full source code?

    You can find my SF 6.2 folder structure in attach file.

    Can you please tell me a bit more about your scenario? 

    Those files are embedded resources in the Sitefinity assemblies and you will not find them on the file system.

    There is a way to get access to all templates / user controls used in Sitefinity.

    You need to download Sitefinity SDK and you will find them under 
    Content / Resources / Widget Templates / Templates

    This blog post describes how to override any of those if needed.

    But again - if you provide more details about your scenario there might be an easier way to get there.
