Step 1: Automated Updates
You don’t need to do anything here. The MT4 terminal already has an inbuilt system of automatic updates. Whenever the terminal connects to the server, it checks for updates and automatically downloads them in the background mode.
You are notified every time this happens, with “Finished” being displayed in the “Journal” tab of the “Terminal” window. If you see this regularly, you don’t need to bother with how to update MT4.
Step 2: Ensure the System Works Properly
Restrictions on your computer or device could prevent your platform from being automatically updated. So, it’s best to check if the latest version of MT4 is running.
Here’s how to do that:
- Go to the “Help” menu
- Select “About”
- In the popup window, look for the version and build that is currently running on your system
In case, it’s not the current version, you need to know how to update MT4 manually.
