Proper Way of Updating Blender


Everytime there is a new update I have to uninstall Blender then install the new version. I just cannot find an option that let’s the software update the existing install.

What is the proper way to update your Blender software on Windows?


Use Microsoft Store version, it updates automatically and your add on still working. Been using it 2 years without any problem.

When I install from the website onto my Mac, it always replaces the previous version.

You can switch to portable versions and remove the old one manually.
