[SOLVED] leaving Anaconda environment in Terminal (Mac)

Issue

This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by stonehenge

I recently installed Anaconda on my Mac for starting to code with Python using Spyder, but decided to switch to VSCode which I find less confusing (I’m a casual coder). However, every time I open Terminal now on my Mac, the prompt starts with “(base)” which seems to indicate I’m still in the Anaconda Base environment. How can I get out?



Solution

If you don’t want to use anaconda, just remove it.

Anaconda goes into the base environment at startup. You can leave it with
conda deactivate.

You can also deactivate this startup function with

conda config --set auto_activate_base False
