Do you want the web server to be used for developer purposes or for real world actual use?

If you want to access your web server away from home, you will have to look into port forwarding and dynamic dns for your router.

xampp will start Apache, otherwise you would need to start it yourself. The documentation clearly reads:

Usage:

xampp_cli.exe «command» «service»
Examples:

* start/stop Apache and MySQL
o xampp_cli start xampp
o xampp_cli stop xampp
* (de-)install Apache as Windows service
o xampp_cli installservice apache
o xampp_cli deinstallservice apache
