# png, jpeg, etc not being found

I just did a clean install of windows 10, and I'm trying to get latex up and running again.

I just installed the basic MikTex 2.9 package and TexMaker. I gave MikTex the authority to install packages on the fly without asking.

The first problem that I have run into is that my figures are no longer compiling.

The code:

\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{times}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{PercentageGraph}
\caption{Accuracy in visual degrees versus how much of the data
can be expected to fall within that radius. }
\end{figure}

PercentageGraph.png is in the same directory as all my other documents.

The error that latex reports:

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...
l.326 ...hics[width=\columnwidth]{PercentageGraph}
I could not locate the file with any of these extensions:
.eps,.ps,.eps.gz,.ps.gz,.eps.Z,.mps
Try typing <return> to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type X <return> to quit.

Am I reading that correctly that it is no longer searching for png, jpeg, pdf, etc? How do I put those file extensions back into the search criteria for images?

• You're probably compiling with LaTeX (shortcut F2) instead of pdfLaTeX (shortcut F6). When compiling in DVI-mode, i.e. with latex, only EPS-images are allowed, while with pdflatex you can use PNG, JPG or PDF. – Torbjørn T. Jan 7 '16 at 20:38
