Installing a new version of Node.js in Laragon is very easy. You have to just download the latest version of node js and place it in the nodejs directory under \laragon\bin\nodejs. Now you have to restart Laragon after selecting the latest node js version.

Step by step instructions to install latest version of nodejs in Laragon

1. Go to https://nodejs.org/en/download/ .

2. Click on the 64-bit option under windows binary (.zip) section to download the zip format.
