I over time through various program instillation now have  .net framework 1,2,and 3 . on my machine . My question is . Is .net framework like java do you have to uninstall previous versions or are they not backwards compatibly. Not a major issue. No problems with any apps at the moment. It is just my need to understand things better.
Thank you in advance.

If you go to the MS.NET website, you will NOT see information indicating that each version is needed.

I only install the latest version available at the time I need it and don't worry about updating it. I uninstall those versions when I do update.

In general the .NET framework will be installed if an application requires it's use. You can also install it/them as Optional Windows Updates. If they're removed, any programs that require them to work - won't.

I've noticed early versions occasionally running in my Task Manager, depending on what apps I have open, so I've concluded that they're not backwards compatible. Could be wrong, of course.

Thank you for the input my main thought was curiousuty and trying to make HD  space but I got that taken care of now.. It is not broken so no need to fix it because I hace some older apps I use and some newone . I have had .net issues before relating to paint and not getting the correct framework to install so I will be smart and not break it by playing with it . My luck is I would end up toasting the OS and not have the data backed up . Murphey is my shadow. :thumbsup:
