localhost – How do I upload my wordpress code files from previous website to localhost wordpress website?

I have WordPress code files from an old website that I downloaded from WP File Manager that I want to view on my local host. I have downloaded Xampp and set up a local hosted WordPress website.

Now how do I upload the code WordPress files to the admin section on my local host, so that I can view the front end of the website from the WordPress code files I have?

I have tried to upload files through WP file manager on localhost version but it doesn’t work correctly, as it has all code files from localhost website, so it is getting duplicated.

Or is there an easier way to do this?

thanks for your help!
