Windows will open the folder named "texturepacks". Go up one folder and you are in the ".minecraft" folder.
Close down Minecraft before making any mods (and do backups of your "bin" and "saves" folders before any changes are made).
For convenience I've made a shortcut on my desktop for the .minecraft" folder.
And yes it has been covered before.

After you find it, download the zip of the word save and unzip it, by using the option "Extract here". Copy the folder you get from the unzipping and paste it on the .minecraft/saves folder. Do all this with your minecraft closed. Open minecraft when you're done and the world will appear on your singleplayer worlds.

That is not possible
If your minecraft is running properly (i mean you can create new worlds, play on existing ones etc) you have a minecraft folder. What you have on the desktop is just the launcher. The first 2 posts here explain 2 ways on how you can find that folder!
Try also see this video of paul on how to find you minecraft folder, it may be better see than just explaining by words.
If he doesn't have a minecraft folder, the launcher will download the latest version of minecraft automatically for him after login with all the files needed.

The appdata folder might be hidden though.
