Just use the default Destination folder as presented, to install it to C:\ then it will install to C:\xampp only.

Use the default Destination folder as shown here:

Full installation instructions on this page:

If you have installed it to already and want to move it to C:\xampp only then simply move the C:\xampp\xampp folder up one level so it now resides in C:\xampp and then run the setup_xampp.bat file to have the configurations reset to the new location.

Test all is fine by going to http://localhost and trying out the demos before proceeding with anything else.

Read the readme_en.txt file and the FAQ (link)

Thx Narrowboyy, but I'm not retarded and i know how to move a folder.
Another thing then you install Tomcat and now knowing about this stupid way of folder choosing u point it to install in 'c:\' (so it would install as main app to 'c:\xampp') you get "suprised" again, because this time it will setup to 'c:\' ....O M G !
