When you have installed TeX Live, you have not installed one program
but many.  The component that will allow you to /edit/ TeX documents
is called TeXworks, which you will find under :

	Start / All programs / TeX Live 2013 / TeXworks editor.

When you have launched this, you instruct it, as any other Windows
program, to Open the file you want to edit.  Then you make the
necessary changes, set the compiler to be PdfLaTeX (or whichever
TeX variant you need), the click "Typeset".
