Don't forget .htaccess is a hidden file. You can create this in a text editor and save the file as ".htaccess" if the txt editor allows this. BUT you will not be able to view the file (because its hidden)! IN order to see your file you created (so long as the text editor you are using allowed this) you must file->view-> hidden

I suggest using mamp or Xampp, download links below.
