Latex Editor is a front end for a LaTeX installation like MiKTeK, if you hit the PS or PDF buttons the code will be compiled and can be viewed using the appropriate viewer.

You have to have MiKTeK installed (in windows and some other LaTeX distribution under other operating systems), You may also have to install Ghost Script/View.

3. I have pdf reader. However, it don't seem to run or compile when I click on the pdf icon. Any reason why?

What I did:

file--new--select TeX/LateX document and set file name as test.tex--type in the command line:
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
My first\Tex~document.
\end{document}

What should I do next? I hope to learn how to compile my latex code please
