The package mathptmx is giving "Times Roman" font. Instead, I need "Times New Roman" font in my LaTeX pdf document.

    You can see at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/67768/times-new-roman-font or tex.stackexchange.com/questions/153168/…. Your question is similar. – Sebastiano Dec 30 '16 at 15:46

    If you really need Times New Roman, and if you have a system that runs either MacOSX or Windows, just switch from pdfLaTeX to LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX, load the fontspec package, and issue the instruction \setmainfont{Times New Roman} in the preamble. If you want to beef up on some of the (rather minor!) differences between the two typefaces, do read Ilene Strizver's nice post TypeTalk: Times Roman vs Times New Roman from 2009. If, after reading the essay, you can readily recognize any salient differences, more power to you! – Mico Dec 30 '16 at 16:38

    In days of yore, when Windows 95 was rampant, I required college papers to be submitted with precise requirements, including font and margins, using a particular program that was in the tech center. No printouts. The digital files came to me, and I substituted a code for the student name. Then the anonymous files were available to other students, who would anonymously evaluate them (not for grade). The purpose of uniformity was to have the digital papers evaluated on content, rather than on layout. I assume this is the norm, possibly excepting creative writing. – user103221 Dec 30 '16 at 17:20
