What is the significance of the red crosses on the control panel? I would presume it is not good viz. service not working correctly

As the headline tells you, this shows that you activeted the option to run the specified Module (Apache, MySQL etc.) as a Service (a WIndows Service).

Totally wrong as you see now.

Read and understand the error message and solve the problem:

10:35:12 PM [Tomcat] Make sure you have Java JDK or JRE installed and the required ports are free
10:35:12 PM [Tomcat] Check the "/xampp/tomcat/logs" folder for more information


Why would you like to install Xampp? Why would you like to run Tomcat? Do you know what Tomcat is? I have the feeling, that you rather have an idea what you are doing there and you are trying to install Xampp "just for fun". What is the goal of your Xampp Project?

My aim is to install Joomla on my lap top so that I might use it and learn. My sister and others have used XAMPP to install Joomla.

Joomla does not require Tomcat. Apache and MySQL are up and running (you see the green background), you are ready to go! Download Joomla and follow the installation manual.
