Upgrade a DBMS

You can upgrade your DBMSs directly in Desktop. All currently supported versions of Neo4j can be run by Desktop and upgrades can be performed between them.

If you are using a 3.5.x DBMS it is not recommended to use Desktop to upgrade directly to 4.1+. Please see the Migration Guide → Supported upgrade and migration paths for more information.

To upgrade a DBMS, click the Upgrade-tab in the right-hand pane and select which version you wish to upgrade to. If available, the release notes for the selected version are shown. Once you click Upgrade, interactive and informative dialog-boxes guide you through the process.
