When I upgrade LO the older versions remain. Do I eliminate any or keep them all? Thank you very much, Amy

Strange for me! What OS?
I'm on Win. Since I keep reliable "still" versions as PortableApps, I install most versions, even RCs, to be very much up to date. With the exception of "developer versions", of course, any inatallation overwrites the old one. Only the user profile is kept.

If you are happy with 5.3.4 then remove the earlier versions. If in doubt you could keep your last 5.2.x version. You do not need to keep earlier versions, they are just using up disk space.

Hello @Amy,

you can just eliminate all of the older versions, and keep only the most recent version.

If there ever arises the need for one of the older versions again, then it can be downloaded from the Open Document Foundation archives.
