  2. Create a new environment by running the following command:conda create --name myenv python=3.8Here, myenv is the name of the virtual environment and python=3.8 specifies the version of Python to be installed in the environment. You can choose any name for your environment and specify the Python version you want to use.
  3. Activate the virtual environment by running the following command:conda activate myenvHere, myenv is the name of the environment that you created in the previous step. This will switch you to the new virtual environment.
  4. Install packages in the virtual environment using the conda install command. For example, to install the NumPy package, run the following command:conda install numpy
  5. Once you have installed all the packages that you need, you can deactivate the virtual environment by running the following command:conda deactivateThis will return you to the base environment.
