# Do I have to setup everything again after update? [duplicate]

I've got Blender version 2.68a and I'd like to update it, but I'm afraid that all of my setup will be deleted and I will have to set it again... Is there some way to keep all this stuff when I will be updating?

Tnaks for help.

• I think, I am not sure but in the splash screen there will be an option to use the previous preferences. However I think you only get this option the first time you do this. – Vader Apr 13 '14 at 11:49
• when you will update it, blender will ask you to load old preferences as well. To be on safe side. Open up blender, and save the file with all the defauts/settings you made in a seperate folder. When you install new version, and some how lost your settings, load up the saved file and then make save your user settings. this will make it defaut. – Ali Jibran Apr 13 '14 at 19:15

On linux, the folder is located at ~/.config/blender/
On OSX, the folder is located at /Users/{user}/Library/Application Support/Blender/
On Windows, the folder is located at C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\
