Which interpreter on my computer should I use?
#1
I am using visual studio code and there is a menu where I can pick interpreter like below.
─░mage


There are so many of them. I feel like I need to clean them up somehow.
Is there a way to do it?

Out of these 9 interpreters, which one to use?
And why does it say (venv) in Python 3.6.5::Anaconda, Inc.?
What's the difference between the one with venv and all the others?

Huh

No do not try to clean up if you don't know what you do.
Virtual environment can be cleaned up,but do not mess with OS install of Python.

The one you want to work with Wink
You have Python 3.7,so use that.
Test with python3 and pip3 -V command line and see if it point to 3.7.

Because it's made a virtual environment with Anaconda.
Look at my tutorial here to learn more about Anaconda.
