How do I make a child theme when using Desktop Server?

I am using Desktop Server instead of a normal hosting service (in order to learn without paying for hosting etc.). But I do not know where or how to make a child theme with it. Nor do I know how to customise the theme files.

Thank you in advance :-)

I found the answer from docs.serverpress.com/article/150-getting-started-with-desktopserver :

"If you accepted all the defaults, then your isolated website files are in a folder titled Websites inside your Documents folder. Look for another folder with the same name as your development site’s domain name, i.e. a folder titled www.example.com."

From here you can create a child theme by following the instructions in this video and then saving it (no FTP obviously)
