Re: [Gimp-user] Is it possible to run GIMP 2.8.10 and GIMP 2.10.20 simultaneously?

I'm not really a graphics person. I have a book titled "The Book of
GIMP" that helps me a lot. It covers up to the version I'm using, but it
won't cover anything new in GIMP 2.10.20. I don't want to clobber the
older version because I will be lost without the advice from that book.

If I can't install it so that I can run both versions simultaneously
could the newer version be installed and then have it so that I can use
one or the other version, but not both at once?

Thanks for any advice on this.

I don't have Windows close at hand but I'm fairly certain that you
should be able to open the properties dialog for the GIMP launcher in
the Windows menu or the quickstart panel (try right clicking on 'GIMP
2.10.20' in the menu?). That properties dialog displays the full path
to the executable file. You should append " -n" (space and -n) to that
full path right after ".exe". Save and close. Now every time you start
GIMP from the menu or the quickstart panel (depending on where you
edited that launcher).
