  • If your texstudio is uptodate: Go to the options of texstudio, enable the extended options, and then in the entry "menu" enable the additional commands. Mar 26, 2015 at 18:28

Depending on your precise needs there are different options:

  • If you want to only run XeLaTeX explicitly from time to time, use Tools -> Commands -> XeLaTeX. You may assign a shortcut in the options.

  • If you want to modify the default build configuration (i.e. the compiler for Tools -> Build / Build & View) then change Options -> Build -> Default Compiler.

  • If you want to modify the build configuration only for this file, include the "magic comment" % !TeX program = xelatex at the top if your file. See the manual for more information on magic comments.
