\begin{document} \maketitle Question: In texWins, when I click "Download Workspace" and then choose just the workspace or the complete TeX file, neither will open as a .pdf. Why not? Answer: Because both of those files are ascii (text) files. They can be edited with a textfile editor, such as Wordpad (set it to .txt, not .rtf). Down load the .pdf file when invited to do so by texWins. (When you create a .pdf on the server by pressing Preview, you see the invitation to download the .pdf). \end{document}
