Using some web page, I tried to install tex on Windows, but with my internet environment it did not succeeed. I want to know other web pages to install.

What web-page do you use to install tex?

  • This depends on the distribution you want to install.

    The first is hyphenation patterns when you type in mongolian. Hieroglyphic is afont to reproduce well… hieroglyphs and greek6bc is an archaic greek font. You also can type in Linear A or Linear B, for Minoan and Mycenian…

There is Tex and there is LaTex, which is, basically, Tex with predefined libraries. Also there are several distributions (not correct, but think of them like "variants") of LaTex for Windows. Personally, I use MiKTex. From the About page:

MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs.

Homepage: https://miktex.org/

Download page: https://miktex.org/download

You can choose installer, portable and command-line installer. Personally I install it with installer.

Hope this helps

  • Thanks. I did not know what page is official to install tex. Sep 30, 2020 at 19:05
