How to run Anaconda Python as default version on Mac

I was successfully running Anaconda Python v3.11.5 on my Mac under OSX 14.0 (Sonoma); however, after a security upgrade to OSX 14.1.1, my Mac constantly defaults to v2.7.10, which means that many of my code packages that are Python-based no longer work. How can I convince my Mac to use the Anaconda version of Python as a default? (Please note that I’m not a Python programmer. I just use a number of canned Python codes in my work.)

It appears that no one reads posts in this forum. Oh well…

Hi there, I’m just spitballing here, but is it possible that the security update changed something in a PATH statement in your .bashrc/.zshrc file?
