How do I insert an EA or indicator in MT4 or MT5?

A lot of beginners don't know how to insert the EA, indicator, and other files in Metatrader 4 and Metatrader 5, so today I will show you how to do it. It's the same way for both terminals. It will be enough to do it once, and you will know it forever.



1. First, open your terminal.
