Then clear your browser's cache as you are being served a cached file and not a fresh file from the server.
Once your browser's cache is cleared you can then access the XAMPP Welcome Page by typing http://localhost/xampp/index.php
in your browser.
After cache clearance and both index files are deleted in the htdocs folder http://localhost/
should give you a directory listing.
BTW, you should clear your browser's cache often when working at localhost level especially when you have strange unusual issues like the one you posted above.
