How to change the link for showing the directories in xampp

In windows, after installing the xampp, the default path for showing the directories is C:/xmapp/htdocs . How should I make the same configure with that in the php video. In that video, they can access the directory list by typing localhost.

These aren't the same thing. If you type C:/xampp/htdocs/shirts4mike/index.php into the browser it's going to vomit php code onto the screen. Once you run xampp you can type localhost into the browser and you should get a directory list and once you select shirts4mike it should kick you to the index.
