Right click on your windows desktop, the context menu appears. Choose "New", then "Link", in the following dialog enter "http://localhost/filename.php" (replace filename.php by any file name which is stored in Xampps htdocs folder), give it a name ("My Script") for example and store that new icon.

Now you may double click that icon which immediately results in opening your default browser (i.e. Firefox or IE8) and showing the output of filename.php

You cannot. Only single files as described above.
