    I am absolutely new to this, sorry. I can't get anything but websites at the http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php after I think I did everything right to get in on my machine. Am I missing something. How do I just open the program? Can one just have a desktop icon? thanks friends.

    WordPress isn't like a regular desktop software such as Microsoft office, which instructions have you followed to install it?

    If you want to run WordPress locally on your computer you need to install a web server.

    Here's some better instructions the show you do that on a Windows PC

    Also some web hosting companies such as Dreamhost have a one click install a feature which makes the process much simpler for novice users, however if you are getting into development then it's better to understand the manual process.
