    I am currently using Gimp version 2.10.8 which has been out for about 4 months now. I would expect a newer version will be available pretty soon.
    My question is this: Do I just go to www.gimp.org and download the newest version when it's available and it will remove the older version and install the newest version OR do I need to manually uninstall the older version first and then download the newest version?

    Hope everyone here at TechGuy is having a great holiday season(y)

    Gimp is a graphics editor. This class of programs usually does not hook into Windows very much because they don't need to. As such, I would simply delete the folder and install the new one.
