When working on multiple projects, particularly if the project is quite old and a huge team is working on it, we will have to use the legacy Android Studio version to run the project. But at the same time, if we are working on any recently created project, it would not be compatible with the old Android Studio version. We will end up in a confused state to deciding which Android Studio version to run on our machine

But no worries, there’s a simple and quick way with which we can run multiple versions of Android Studio on our machine.

Here are the steps to do it-

  1. Navigate to https://developer.android.com/studio#downloads and download the zip versions of the different Android Studio you would want to run.
  2. Extract the zip files to the desired location.
  3. Now just open the extracted zip file, navigate to the bin directory and run the studio64.exe file. Voila! You will now be able to run multiple Android Studio versions on your machine.
  4. Bonus Step — Pin the versions to Taskbar so that the next time you can run it quite easily.
