I am using MiKTeX 2.9 on Windows 8 and I need to install a package by hand. Looking at their documentation page I copy my input files to the correct directory and then need to register the new package in MiKTeX Options. The problem, I cannot find MiKTeX Options! When I first installed MiKTeX, MiKTeX Options and some other programs related to MiKTeX showed up on the start screen but I unpinned them and now I cannot seem to find them. Anyone has any ideas? DO I need to re-install MiKTeX maybe?

If windows 8 has as windows7 a search window then type "settings", this should find the miktex settings. Or go in the windows explorer to the miktex/bin folder and start mo.exe. –  Ulrike Fischer Jan 6 at 12:59
    
Click on the Windows logo (left bottom) and type miktex and then you'll find the MikTeX menu. Use the one with (adm) to install packages. –  Sigur Jan 6 at 12:59
    
@UlrikeFischer your suggestion to find and start mo.exe did the trick! How do I mark it as the correct answer? –  Smajjk Jan 6 at 13:52

@Sigur It depends, cf. Difference between administrative and user mode of MiKTeX. –  Speravir Jan 6 at 22:28
