# Uninstalling Miktex and installing TexStudio [closed]

I want to uninstall Miktex 2.9 and install TexStudio 2.5.2. (I'm totally a beginner user and TexStudio seems easier to use.)

Should I totally uninstall Miktex (package managers and everything) then install TexStudio? Or is it better to only get rid of the Miktex program?

TeXstudio is a TeX editor and it needs MiKTeX (or TeX Live), which is a TeX distribution. Simply install both and use TeXstudio for your editing. Should work fine, it does for me. –  Peter Jansson May 5 '13 at 20:47
Don't get rid of MikTeX, you need a TeX distribution. TexStudio is only an editor. Which editor did you use before? –  Qrrbrbirlbel May 5 '13 at 20:47
I guess you used the TeX editor TeXworks, that is preshipped with the TeX distribution MiKTeX (and – as side remark – with TeX Live, another TeX distribution, as well). –  Speravir May 5 '13 at 21:10
I'm using Windows XP and MikTex takes up a lot of space (printing is now problematic). Is there a stand-alone Tex distribution similar to TexStudio that I could use? Thanks. –  Medulla Oblongata May 5 '13 at 23:06
It's worthwhile to have a look at LaTeX vs. MiKTeX: The levels of TeX –  texenthusiast May 6 '13 at 1:41
