how to configuring a xampp web server for different root directory

You can change Apaches httpd.conf by clicking (in xampp control panel) apache/conf/httpd.conf and adjust the entries for DocumentRoot and the corresponding Directory entry.
Just Ctrl+F for “htdocs” and change the entries to your new path.

See screenshot:

XAMPP config

# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs"
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">
