Hello anyone:

I have used TeX editors in the past, but my memory of how I did this is poor.

How do I show pdf output in any TeX editor? I have tried using BaKoMa, TeXworks, and TeXstudio, but I have never seen any pdf version.

I need extremely elementary guidance.

I know nothing of BaKoMa or TeXstudio. but TeXworks, out of the box, should automatically display the resulting PDF.  Try the following :

*   Open TeXworks
*   Tell it to create a new file (if it did not do so by default)
*   Paste the next line into the new file
*   Hello world\end
*   Look in the "Compiler" drop-down and ensure that it reads either "PdfTeX" or "XeTeX"
*   Press Ctrl+\
*   Press the "Compile" button
*   Accept the proposed filename and location
*   Report back what happens
