Having Trouble Opening Files in Xcode

Hi everyone. I am completely new to iOS development and just started the track. I downloaded Xcode and proceeded watching the first video, but when I open the zip file in Xcode just like the instructor does, only the text editor from Xcode shows up. In the video, when Douglass does it, the whole program shows. If I want to copy him exactly, I have to go through this process of writing a product name and number and a whole bunch of other information that isn't covered in the video.

Can anyone help me please? I was excited to start learning iOS development, and can't seem to even get through the most basic part.

Make sure you are opening the xcodeproj file
