How to select Python environments in notebook

Gary Fritz 21 Reputation points

I'm trying to switch to VS for my Python learning / development. Still finding my way around.

I suspect this is a "duh" problem, but I'm having trouble with environments. I can select an env in the Terminal with .venv/Scripts/Activate.ps1, so I can pip-install modules in the environment. But the code I run in my notebook (using the "Jupyter" & related extensions) doesn't use that env. VS has a command to create an env, but I see no way to select the env that the code runs in. VS doesn't seem to pay attention to the .venv dir in my workspace directory, even if I start VS by running code in that dir.

I've googled all over and I can't find an answer. Help?

    Hi @Gary Fritz ,

    You may ask this question(technical support) on VS Code related forums(Stack Overflow - VS Code or GitHub - VS Code) for better help, as Visual Studio IDE is different from Visual Studio Code and currently VS Code is not supported on Microsoft Q&A.

    Thanks for your understanding and have a nice day:)

    Best Regards,
