Removing older version of FTM

Removing older version of FTM

I have installed on my machine family tree maker 2010, family tree maker 2011, and Family Tree Maker 2012. Can I remove older versions to make more space on my computer? Or will this mess up my Family Tree Maker 2012? Does anyone know please?

If you have imported the family files into FTM 2012, (or the latest version FTM) you should have no problem deleting the old program from the system using the add/delete program function. (In Windows it is in Settings, control Panel, Add/Remove Programs) WIndows XP through 7

Only God knows how to do it in Windows 8.

Once you remove the older versions, you may wish to collect all of your FTM data files in one folder. I have use the "Family Tree Maker" automatically created by FTM 2012, and collected all of the files from FTM version 16, in a folder, FTM16, within the "Family Tree Maker" folder. This keeps my genealogy data files together.
