I have my wordpress in a /wp directory.
I want my visitors to myurl.com to see
How do I create this without moving the wordpress installation?
I found some links to explanations but it didnt work for me.
I need a clear step by step instruction that has been tested/verified.

Have you seen either of these websites? Both have recent instructions (2013) on moving from sub-directory to root. I've looked at them and they are both identical instructions.
Are these clear enough for you? Let me know how you get on.

To clarify I don't want to move the site from the sub directory.
Id prefer the wordpress files to stay in the WP directory.
Maybe a htaccess code issue?

Thank you for the clarification.
On the instructions on this site
Under the heading 'Moving A Website From A Subdirectory To The Root' it confirms that you don't have to move anything. All your Wordpress files stay where they are.
All you need to do is COPY two files into the Root directory (one of them is indeed the htaccess, the other index.php), and slightly alter the moved index.php file. Then change the Settings> General settings. If you are using peralinks then you need to follow the instructions for those as well.
If I have misunderstood your needs, then perhaps another researcher will be able to jump in here and help.
