Installation with separate /home partition

What is recommended for the $HOME/.config directory when installing a new linux os?

Should I delete my existing .config? Will the installation create a new one on the separate /home partition?

I notice that I have many things floating around in .config that are not relevant to my new installation - like .config/evolution when my new installation installs thunderbird.

I also lost my visible menu launcher on the taskbar when installing various cinnamon distros - I assume it was due to a setting in .config somewhere.

So, is the correct practice to delete the existing .config in a separate partition?

you can just rename it to .config.bak and a new config will be recreated
