This tutorial is for very beginner. In this tutorial, I will show you how to install a WordPress theme. We can install WordPress in two different ways.
As you a novice, I will suggest you give some extra time for choosing the right theme for your WordPress website.

Your theme is installed. Go to your localhost in the web browser. And reload the url. You will see the difference after installing your new theme.
Process 2: Installing through uploading the theme from admin panel
If you purchased a theme from Envato or any other theme buy and selling platform. Then you have to follow this way to install the WordPress theme. Go to Appearance and click on themes.
Click on add new and then click on Upload Theme.
Then you will see a new area opened with naming Choose File. Click on it. Then select the file destination.
