There are two ways to do that -
  1. Double click on the file icon. OR
  2. Right click on the file icon -> select 'Open With' -> Select 'NotePad' -> Click 'Ok'.
I think that's very basic for a computer science student.

Maybe u don't know what .php files are 馃憥. If that's the case let me tell you that this extension is of the files of the language PHP (you can search for PHP on web) . As Biggie (Kaustabh) said, u can open it using notepad (or any other text editor).馃榾

rahul69 : I think the question is more inclined towards making php files execute. But we'd never know what the question is unless it's properly explained.

Adding my 2 cents,
You can open .php extension file from browser too. All you need is a web-server installed. I would recommend you WAMP as it's quite easy for beginners & no additional configuration is required to run .php file.

I agree with Abhishek Rawal...WAMP is a components of package...once you install,start all services...save your .php files in C:/Program Files/wamp/www and then run the file in browser..give the https://localhost:(port)/your file name....

hope i have given correct....anyhow you keep searching about wamp and make use of it....

WAMP works good with all-in-one PHP handler. just install wamp and follow simple instructions you are all set with everything Webserer Apache, PhpMyadmin and MYSQL all bundled in one.

I am using for wordpress and works like charm. In addition you just need extra IDE either PHP Storm, Eclipse for Php or anyother as you like.
I recommend JetBrain's PHP Storm IDE, most advanced IDE on earth.馃榾
