I wish I could help, but I am also fairly new to Jaws having been a loyal Window-Eyes user for over 20 years.
But, since Jaws installs to a new folder I think it also offers to import your settings from the previous version, so you might be OK.
But maybe one of the Jaws users with lots of experience will chime in with a more solid answer.

Richard, I'm new to Jaws, been using NVDA and Window eyes. I did set up
jaws and have been slowly learning. I made some changes to Jaws, is
there some folder that I'd copy over to have the same settings? If so,
how would you go about it? Thank You.

Jaws never replaces itself. It always adds another folder and desktop
icon for the new version so you can still use the prior version if you
find things that work better with that version.
That is something I wish more programs would do.
Uninstalling the beta if you are running it makes sense.

Thank You for the info. One more question, once downloaded, will it
install over the one already installed? Thanks.

I'm new to jaws. What is the proper way to upgrade to this new release?
I went into Jaws help to check for upgrades and it said I was current.
Thanks for any info.
