I am running Apache, PHP and MySQL on windows IIS.

I have an index.php page with a switch statement:
switch($_REQUEST["ID"]){
   case 1:
        exceute code for home page
        break;
   case 2:
        exceute code for products
        break;
   case 3:
        exceute code for contact us
        break;
}

I want all my code to reside on my index.php page but want users to access my page using other page names (i.e. products.php and contactus.php)

Home Page: index.php?ID=1 -> index.php
Products: index.php?ID=2 -> products.php
Contact Us: index.php?ID=3 -> contactus.php
Contact Use: index.php?ID=3 - > contactus.php

I am new to .htaccess

Please go slow
