  1. Start your platform, if not ready open.
  2. On the File menu, click on Open Data Folder.
  3. An Explorer window opens.
  4. It's all the data for your platform, open MQL4 folder.
  5. In this folder you can find Experts, Indicators and Scripts sub-folders,
  6. Copy your mq4 or ex4 file in the appropriate folder.
  7. Restart your MT4 platform.

P.S. It's not the only way, but it's simplest for non technical person I think.

    I am new to MT4. I just got a new indicator and they are not in the list of custom indicator. I also do not have a folder called custom indicator. The file extention is.ex4 and I downloaded it and copied and pasted in C:\USERS\USER NAME\APPDATA\ROAMING\METAQUOTES\TERMINAL\32 CHARACTER LONG MT4 ID\MQL4

    I restarted the platform several times and cannot see these indicators.

    Prior to this, I downloaded MT5 and installed MT5 and later I uninstalled it. 

    Then reinstalled MT4 .  I am trying to reinstall the MT4 but the it server error and preventing uninstallation .

    Pleass tell how to to go about.

    Look for the Open data Folder (terminal -> File -> Open data Folder) there in MQL4\Indicators  (or MQL5) you should place/find your indicator.

    To load it go to the terminal's Navigator and after right mouse click + Refresh you should find it.
