    I am trying to install the latest WordPress to computer (never before used it), and it just comes up in my documents file, and all the information is pictures!

    Also, do I HAVE to use a domain host?

    Let me know what's going on.

    You need a web server to run WordPress.

    I am new to all of this, so what do you mean?

    You cannot run WordPress on just any computer. You need to be running a web server first. Have you read Hosting_WordPress?

    Yes, but I don't understand if I have it or not. D:

    If you don't understand what a web server is, then you are not running one. You will need to purchase hosting space on a remote server and a domain name to use with your new site.
