I have downloaded a theme in Magento CMS and now I want to preview this theme in my Localhost xampp server. For that I have installed Magento on my local server.

But I don't know how to preview the downloaded theme in xampp server.

What I have done: I have copied the app, js, media and skin folders to the folder into the Magento installation directory but nothing made. Please tell me how I can solve this.

enter image description here
