Ask questions'conda activate conda-environment' not working on Windows 10
When a conda environment is selected as the Python interpreter and a Python script is run in terminal, the environment should be activated by the 'conda activate env-name' command and the script should be run in the environment.
The terminal shows a CommandNotFoundError:
CommandNotFoundError: Your shell has not been properly configured to use 'conda activate'. If your shell is Bash or a Bourne variant, enable conda for the current user with
$ echo ". C:\Users\user\Anaconda3/etc/profile.d/conda.sh" >> ~/.bashrc
or, for all users, enable conda with
$ sudo ln -s C:\Users\user\Anaconda3/etc/profile.d/conda.sh /etc/profile.d/conda.sh
The options above will permanently enable the 'conda' command, but they do NOT put conda's base (root) environment on PATH. To do so, run
$ conda activate
in your terminal, or to put the base environment on PATH permanently, run
$ echo "conda activate" >> ~/.bashrc
Previous to conda 4.4, the recommended way to activate conda was to modify PATH in your ~/.bashrc file. You should manually remove the line that looks like
^^^ The above line should NO LONGER be in your ~/.bashrc file! ^^^
The script is then executed by explicitly calling the full path to the conda environment: C:/Users/user/Anaconda3/envs/env-name/python.exe
The same error is obtained when I run 'conda activate env-name' in Command Prompt or in Windows PowerShell.
I can activate the environment by running 'activate env-name' in Command Prompt.
If I run 'activate env-name' in Windows PowerShell, I get an error:
activate : File C:\Users\user\Anaconda3\Scripts\activate.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system. For more information, see about_Execution_Policies at https:/go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170. At line:1 char:1

I get this same error if I run 'activate env-name' in the VS Code Terminal.

conda init powershell from a PowerShell it works over here. Is this documented already? Would https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/integrated-terminal#_configuration be a good place for this?
