I have been using Pot Player for a year now and really like it.
I thought it was time I updated it.
If I download the latest version and then install it will it keep my settings or will I have to re-do them

In theory it should keep them, but a year is quite a while and PotPlayer has changed a bit, for example they added Open Codecs, that you download during installation.
What I usually do, before bigger update of any important program is backing up all its files/folders to a different disc. But in this case first you can export settings: Preferences and click Export Presets.
Then back up of PotPlayer's folders (for Win7)- C:\Program Files (x86)\DAUM\PotPlayer or C:\Program Files\DAUM\PotPlayer ,for x64 version and C:\Users\(User's name)\AppData\Roaming\PotPlayerMini
I assume that you still have installer exe of your present PotPlayer version, so you can tactically return to it for a time being .
Of course a clean install would be the best, but I know that in case of PotPlayer there is a lot of setting up to be redone.
