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 👎. 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).😀

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 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.😀
