Changing Name of a Python SDK or Virtual Environment

With PyCharm, 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. In the Project Interpreters page, select one of the configured interpreters or virtual environments.
  2. Click edit1.
  3. In the Edit Python Interpreter dialog box that opens, type the desired interpreter name.

    The Python interpreter name specified in the Name field, becomes visible in the list of available interpreters.

    If necessary, change the path to the Python executable.
