To remove a Conda environment, you can use the ‘
conda remove‘ command with the ‘
--name‘ flag to specify the name of the environment you want to remove. For example, to remove an environment named ‘
myenv‘, you can use the following command:
conda remove --name myenv --all
This will remove the environment and all the packages installed in it. If you want to keep the packages and just remove the environment, you can use the ‘
--no-deps flag‘ :
conda remove --name myenv --no-deps
This will remove the environment but keep the packages installed in it.
You can also use the ‘
conda env remove‘ command to remove an environment. This command is equivalent to the ‘
conda remove‘ command with the’
--name‘ flag. For example, to remove the ‘
myenv‘ environment, you can use the following command:
conda env remove --name myenv
Note that you cannot remove the default base environment that comes with Conda. If you try to remove the base environment, you will get an error.
It’s also a good idea to deactivate the environment before removing it. To deactivate an environment, you can use the ‘
conda deactivate‘ command. For example:
This will deactivate the current environment, allowing you to remove it without any issues.
