- Tap Next and complete the installation.

Don’t forget to increment the number every time in the last part of the Installation folder’s path on every single integration of the installation.
- Go to C:\Program Files (x86) (or you can also open the folder in which you installed all the MT4 instances) and locate the folders of the distinctive MT4 instances that you just installed.
- Go into the folder of the first instance (1), and the file named “terminal.exe” will appear there (There are normally two of them). Please select the EXECUTABLE file rather than choosing the icon file.
- After that, right-click it and choose to Send to > Desktop (create shortcut). After completing this, it will create a file’s shortcut to your pc that makes it convenient to launch your first MT4 instance.
