I got a new PC and hence a new TeXWorks installation. TeXWorks or MikTeX now puts all auxiliary and log files in some directory. Does anyone know, where I can find these files? Can I configure TeXWorks in a way such that it put all files in the working directory, like my old instalation did?


Go to menu Edit -> Preferences, Typesetting tab:

click on the Edit... button to launch the Tool Configuration:

Select an engine: in the Arguments window, you should have a line like --aux-directory=.... Just click on the button to remove it.

If you want to change the location, remove it, then click on the + button to add a new path (the path is relative to the current directory).
