You have to download the 'Project Files'. It's a zip folder. The theme is in 'final-theme' > 'treehouse-portfolio'. You should have a 'Downloads' folder in your pc, look there once you download it.

If you haven't installed wordpress yet, you'll need to go to wordpress.org and download the latest version.

Hope it helps

Hi Melissa. Did you install wamp or xampp into your computer?

If you have installed it, you must go to the wamp folder and into there, go to www folder, and then you have to go to the wordpress folder thar you had created.

If you didn't do it I recommend that you watch the video "Local WordPress Development". In this lesson you'll learn how to install wordpress in your computer. And if you will use the Wamp server. The folder that you want problably will be into C:/wamp/www/yourWordPress directory
