By default (and recommended), the 2.2.2 installer will upgrade (overwrite) the previous version of Audacity.
If for any reason you need to go back to an older version, you can simply re-download the older installer and overwrite (downgrade) the 2.2.2 version.

Audacity 2.2.2 is compatible with projects made with earlier versions of Audacity.

If you have a strong reason for having multiple versions installed at the same time, then that is possible, but not generally recommended (unless you are an experienced "beta tester").

download the 2.2.2 version?
You may not want to go back depending on which one. 2.2.1 and maybe 2.2.0 had a serious Project file management problem that could cause show damage.

You can download the installer and keep it parked on the side somewhere. You don't have to download it each time.
