    Thanks for that but I am not trying to upload it. I want to put it on my computer so that I can play around and learn it

    Oh right, sorry. Misunderstood. What are you running as your local testing server?

    Can't you just right click and make a new folder whilst you're in htdocs?

    Thanks for replies, I appreciate it. I have somehow managed to get that folder in but have found another problem. I have the latest copy of Winzip. Do you know how I can get the unzipped Joomla files into the new folder?
    You can tell I'm pretty raw and do appreciate help

    Just unzip the files to your desktop, or another folder and then just upload to the correct folder online.

    doublle click on the zipped joomla file.
    you should see an option called "extract"
    click that

    select the folder your created
    press enter

    it should extract to that folder for you
