How to change the port number of Apache in Xampp

I am a novice I do not know anything about port numbers and how to change them. While installing Xampp on my windows 8.1 it is showing Error in port that apache has to use. How can I resolve this port issue and which port number I should change it to
Please help me out
This is the error coming while running xampp

Answer Source

Open xamp, click on http.conf and search ServerName localhost

 ServerName localhost:8181 

I have set 8181 as my port, it will be 80 change it to 81 (since 80 is being used VMware in your case and it is used by skype too).

Reset the server after saving it..
