I installed Joomla! to test it and everything is working fine except that when I type in localhost in my browser it doesn't load the index.php file and shows all the content in the htdocs folder instead. Can someone please help me with this? Thanks in advance.

(not to pimp a software, still, I do like Fetch much better. Down side is, it does cost 25 bucks.)

In the httpd.conf, is the default address the browser will use to access your files. It is actually something like http://localhost/xampp/index.php in the address bar. You shouldn't have to type all that in though.
on line 176 to 180 of the httpd.conf file:
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
As for "http://localhost/administrator/", there is no such directory thus you should receive an error message.
edit; and since your typing in index.php and not getting that file is because the actual php file is not located in that directory. The html file in that directory is actually linking to the php in another directory.
I hope all this makes sence.

line 241 to 243 should read:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.htmls index.htm
basically, it should be there already
