I have the '*.set' file for an EA. In the MT5 user guide I read that this file is located in Tester directory. 

How can I open this '*.set' file to read its content? Also, should it have the same root name as its EA for it to be applied to the EA?

Thank you.

For tester.

For a chart.

The   .set  file can go wherever you like,  once you have the EA o your char goto it's Properties then click Load and find the  .set file,  this will import the settings from the  .set file into your EA.
