You can do that but I'd probably advise against it.

Thats usually how I do it. The uninstall will leave your Python
directory alone if it has locally defined packages added.
So just reinstall in the same place.

You can have two versions if you wish, just make sure you
call the right one for your programs - check PATH order etc.
