Changing Name of a Python Interpreter or Virtual Environment

The following is only valid when Python Plugin is installed and enabled!

With IntelliJ IDEA, one can easily discern numerous Python interpreters and virtual environments by their names, rather than by the long paths to the executables.

To change visible name of a Python interpreter

  1. Open the Project Structure dialog (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S).
  2. In the Project Structure dialog, click the node SDKs under the Platform Settings.
  3. In the Name field, change the name the interpreter as required:
    ij change interpreter name
  4. Apply changes.
