It shouldn't. It should request the orange XAMPP Administration Page.

Well, phpmyadmin is also written in php, so your php seems to work, just your scripts didn't.
Most common "php don't get parsed issues":
- Using short_open_tag
- wrong Browser request (file:// instead of http:// protocol)
- File extension .html instead of .php
- wrong encoding (UTF8 with instead of without ByteOrderMark, UCS2 or other Multibyte- or other non-ANSI character encodings)
