Switching between Anaconda and Anaconda3

Is there an easy way to switch between using Anaconda (Python 2) and Anaconda3 (Python 3) from the command line? I am on Windows 10.

Answer

In CMD as long as both Python 2 and Python 3 are installed through Anaconda:


conda create -n python2 python=2.7 anaconda
conda create -n python3 python=3.4 anaconda
conda create -n python3 python=3.5 anaconda

If you have 3.4, run line 2. If you have 3.5, run like 3. This will create 2 environment variables,

python2

This will execute Python 2.

python3

This will execute Python 3.
