Install gmic gimp plugin Windows 10 demo
This is strictly beginner stuff.

The advice for installing compiled plugins, filename.exe is put the plugin along with any associated somefile.dll files directly into the Gimp profile C:\Users\yourname\.gimp-28\plug-ins

There is the occasional plugin that comes with an installer. Some such as BIMP install directly to the main Gimp file structure. Never a good idea when you come to uninstall. Very easy to delete more (or leave behind parts) of the plugin.

Then there is G'mic. 
Very popular, comes with a host of filters, some 470. With the development of the QT interface the installer now creates a new folder to contain, which in the Windows version, is a sizeable number of files.

My advice, until you get a bit more experienced, stick with the defaults.

The default installation folder is: C:\Users\yourname\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\gmic_gimp_qt

To enable gimp to use the plugin, the path to that location needs adding to the plugins path in: 
Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Plug-ins

Looks like this:


And as ever, for those still confused, a video demo of the above Wink
