How to Get Started with Latex on Windows 10 Texmaker MiKTeX



This video will show you how to install Latex, and make your first PDF output on Windows 10. This is not the only software or method for doing it, just the way that has worked best for me. You will just need to install 2 software packages, MiKTeX and Texmaker. Texmaker is the editor for Latex, where MiKTeX handles the compiling.

MiKTeX can be downloaded from:

Texmaker can be downloaded from:

After you have them downloaded, just run through the installation. You can essentially select the defaults for installation for both.

Once the installations are finished, open Texmaker. To make your first Latex document, just click on new at the top left. After that, I would paste in some known working Latex so you can test it out. In the video I used:

Click the arrow to the left of quick build to compile the latex document. It should ask you if you want to install lingmacros, because it is the first time that has been used, so just click yes to install it. It will not ask you if you want to install tree-dvips because that is included in the Latex installation already.

After the package installation is completed, then the compiled PDF will show up on the right. If you make a change and compile again, it will compile much faster because it has all of the packages required.

  • I am absolutely astounded that a typesetting program would require a local server to be running. Is there a huge benefit to that kind of setup? Is it set up that way to allow people to collaborate or something?

  • Hi, when I press quickbuild, this error appears: pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex and I don't know how to fix it as I am a beginner. What does it mean and what should I do? I tried installing Texliver but got my computer into a mess as I don't know what to do. Thanks!

  • Hello, thanks for your video,it's really clear and easy to understand. Recently I have installed the newest version Miktex and uninstalled my old version, the new version is a little different from old one, now I have no idea how to add the package from local repository ( I must use the template from our university, so i can't intall the package by updating automatic from internet). If you have time, could you make this tutorial next time? really thanks!
