How do I upgrade my version of Python?

If I followed these steps to install one version of Python but want to upgrade to a new version of Python at some point in the future, how would I go about updating it?

Hi Javier Alvarado ! Personally, I've found the best way to upgrade to a new version of Python is to install a new one using the installer you download from the website. Once that's all done, and depending on my own usage, I may uninstall the previous version just like you would any other application.
