I cannot see how I can CHMOD the files in a windows OS.
it will not publish Joomla, Drupal or any sites that require CHMOD to safeguard the files,
I also wish to protect the XAMPP folders from the internet as my IP address will be the domain when I set up the DNS with the web address's.
As I cannot figure out how to allow the internet through the XAMPP password to view the website in htdocs
I figured it would be better to put the websites on a dedicated partition on the hard drive. So how do I get XAMPP to see these websites?

On Windows, these scripts don't require a CHMOD. (maybe the want have a read-only attribute for some files.)
--> You should ask the support for Joomla, Drupal or xxx, how to install it on Windows (but all of them have a description in their manual).

What exactly does you mean with "XAMPP folders".
C:\xampp\and the files and folders contained within.
FROM XAMPP APACHE SECURITY LINK
"These XAMPP pages are accessible by network for everyone UNSECURE
Every XAMPP demo page you are right now looking at is accessible for everyone over network. Everyone who knows your IP address can see these pages."
Anyone typing in my ISP can presently see these pages.
I deleted the htaccess files after making the xampp folder secure because nobody on the internet can access the websites in the htdocs folder.
