how to install plugins globally

I would like to know how to use the mu-plugins folder. Is this where all of my plugins should be installed or do they go in the regular plugins folder?

    Hi @Rhonda,

    I hope you are well today and thanks for your question.

    Here are some clarification of the "mu plugins":

    Must-use plugins (a.k.a. mu-plugins) are plugins installed in a special directory inside the content folder and which are automatically enabled on all sites in the installation. Must-use plugins do not show in the default list of plugins on the Plugins page of wp-admin – although they do appear in a special Must-Use section – and cannot be disabled except by removing the plugin file from the must-use directory, which is found in wp-content/mu-plugins by default.
