    there is no way to view a theme if it is not uploaded to a wordpress install. you can preview a theme without actually changing the site's theme

    a simple way is install a wordpress in your own PC. This way you can see the theme, and then upload only the one you like

    Well usually there is a screenshot inside the theme. Not much, but can give an idea.

    Install mamp server on your pc then install wordpress copy and paste the theme into the
    themes folder activate it and see it on your localhost. I think this will work as wamp works on windows and It's faster then uploading the theme to your server but the steps are basically the same.
