3. After running XAMPP, you will also need to install and download Bitnami (https://bitnami.com/stack/xampp#magento). It’s an application  that is used for installing Magento on top of XAMPP. The good thing about Bitnami is you don’t need to register to Magento website  to download the Magento application itself.
