By default Each of project located in www htdocs folder directory are accessed by http://localhost/projectname so we want to change it http://projectname.local or whatever local domain you want, I have my site project http://localhost/sdtuts and I want to access it as http://sdtuts.local/.

Open apache httpd-vhosts.conf

Go you installed xampp_directory/apache\conf\extra\ open file httpd-vhosts.conf make it empty and add following code in

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "D:/xampp/htdocs/"

    ServerName sdtuts.local
    <Directory "D:/xampp/htdocs/sdtuts">
        Require all granted 
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Setup it on hosts file
