Installing LaTeX editor in Windows

My preferred method for LaTeX editing on Windows is to use WSL GUI and then

apt install texstudio

If you wish to install the latest version of downloaded TeXstudio

apt remove texstudio texstudio-data

gdebi texstudio*amd64.deb

The rest of this page pertains to native Windows install of TeXstudio.

TeXstudio native Windows install

  1. Download MiKTeX
  2. Install MikTeX. The default options are generally fine.
  3. Download/Install TeXstudio

you need to (re)compile your .bib file by pressing F8 in TeXstudio. Watch for error messages

MiKTeX install package

This popup occurs when compiling a new document with packages it uses that you don’t have yet. You can uncheck “ask me each time” if you are comfortable with that and want to stop seeing the popups.

Fix “package not found”

  1. press the Windows key then type Package Manger and click on the MiKTeX icon to open the package manager.
  2. click Repository/Synchronize.
  3. install the missing package.
