In the Files & Memory preferences pane you can find the full path to the User Extensions folder. Open this folder in your system file browser.

In your Documents folder is a folder called "My LiveCode". In this, locate (or you need to create) a plugins folder (2). Place the plugin stack in this folder (3) and then launch LiveCode.
