I was finding that for several days there and on lots of other forum but nothing specific for my problem. Could anyone here advice me how to crate my TeX folder for store my styles and templates there? I use the latest MiKTeX compiler with all packages on Windows 10 up to date.

Thank you very very much in advance! :-)

  • You need a "myTeXFolder" with a folder tex/latex in it. Commented Apr 1, 2017 at 17:22

You create your local TeX directory, like any other directory, with Windows explorer, (almost) anywhere you please (not in the main Root directory, though). Then you have to register it as a TeX root directory, with MiKTeX Settings, both as administrator and as user. For this, select the Roots tab, click on the Add and select your local root:

Don't forget your local roots has to be organised according to the TDS (TeX Directory Structure). Last step: after you've installed new files: refresh the FNDB (General tab).
