How do you change a regular outlet to a GFCI outlet?

Install the new switch plug on the floor, attach the cables in black and white next to the plug line. Connect the naked wire to the landing screw. Replace the lid and make sure the GFCI works correctly. Press the test button that the plug has to die.
