Theme doesn't appear in my local website WP admin area

I downloaded treehouse-portfolio theme into: User/Sites/localwp.com/wp-content/themes

But when I open Themes in WP admin area there's no this Theme.

What setting should I check? How to make it work?

May be I should check setting in config.php (if so, what setting are correct)??

In themes there is a section called "Broken Themes", maybe it's there?

Shoot you're right! Found this theme under "Broken Themes" because of random spelling mistake so I fixed it and it appeared in Themes. Hurray!

Ensure you named "style.css" correctly. The next video goes in depth into explaining things that could go wrong and prevent your theme from showing up.
