This question already has an answer here:

I use "Texmaker-3.5.2" with "basic-miktex-2.9.4757" on Windows 8.1 on my personal laptop (LenovoZ5070).

I checked Options\Configure Texmaker\Commands. It includes:

LATEX: latex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

PDFLATEX: pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

XLATEX: xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

You can see that my system contains "-synctex=1". However “click to jump to the line” is not working! Please help me.

I had the same problem on windows 7 and found a solution from here: [http://latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=23400]

Frank in the answer said on that site: get rid of any spaces or special characters from your file names.

    I did answer the question - "the site said to get rid of any spaces or special characters from your file names". My answer was not a "link-only" answer. And I don't think a simple solution like this needs an example. (I included the link as an attribute) – Matt Majic Mar 23 '16 at 0:10
  • This is not working for me. I am on Windows 7 and I have Texmaker 5.0.2 (compiled with Qt 5.8.0). I Do not have any spaces in the file names (nowhere) and still, I can't jump from the pdf to the editor. – kalmanIsAGameChanger Apr 14 '18 at 14:47
  • The answer is here tex.stackexchange.com/questions/89026/… you just need to add -synctex=1 to the pdflatex command – kalmanIsAGameChanger Apr 14 '18 at 14:48
