    Hey there!
    What editor do you use to write ##LaTeX##?

    I use LyX and TeXnicCenter.
    LyX is a word-processorish WYSIWYM editor while Texniccenter is a WYSIWYG IDE.
    (Both work with MikTeX and are open-source)

    Texmaker is what I use.

    Vim is great (and free)

    I downloaded LyX and tried to install it but windows smart screen displayed a warning message. Is this software safe? :)

    Did you download it from their original website?
    I can confirm you that it's safe!

    I wonder why you just don't read the "Best Latex editor?" thread pinned at the top of the forum first before posting?
