Estimated read time 2 min read

To set up a Python interpreter in PyCharm, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Open your PyCharm project.
  2. Click on “File” in the top menu and select “Settings” (or “Preferences” on Mac).
  3. In the Settings/Preferences window, navigate to “Project: <your project name>” > “Python Interpreter”.
  4. Click on the gear icon in the top right corner and select “Add”.
  5. In the “Add Python Interpreter” dialog box, select the interpreter you want to use from the list of available interpreters. If the interpreter you want to use is not in the list, click on “System Interpreter” and navigate to the location of the interpreter executable file.
  6. If you want to use a virtual environment, select “Existing environment” and navigate to the virtual environment folder. Alternatively, you can create a new virtual environment by selecting “New environment” and specifying the location and Python version you want to use.
  7. Click on “OK” to save your changes and close the dialog box.
  8. Once you’ve set up the interpreter, PyCharm will automatically install any necessary packages when you install them using pip or the PyCharm package manager.

That’s it! You can now use the Python interpreter you set up in PyCharm to run and debug your code.
