Editing Navigator and conda configuration files#


Be careful when changing values directly in the configuration files for Navigator or conda. Incorrect configuration can cause issues with these products.

To directly edit Navigator and conda’s configuration files:

  1. Open the Navigator Preferences dialog.

    Open the File menu and click Preferences.

    Open the Anaconda Navigator or python menu and click Preferences.

  2. Click Configure Navigator to open the anaconda-navigator.ini file or click Configure Conda to open the .condarc file within Navigator.

  3. Edit the file to change any configurations.

    When you edit the Navigator and conda configuration files in Navigator, a validation tool warns you about missed requirements or incorrect formatting. The .condarc file must be a valid .yaml format file.

  4. Click Save and Restart to save any changes to the open configuration file and restart Navigator.
