Jupyter nootbook and Jupyter lab - installation and launch in diff environment

I’m updating Jupyter notebook to v7 and Jupyter lab to v4. However it is getting installed in a new environment and not the base environment.

  1. Is it okay? or will there be a functional issue?
  2. Can I have Jupyter lab and notebook separately on desktop or is it necessary to have it as an application as part of Anaconda environment and launch it from the navigator.

Appreciate your guidance


Hi @vireng9

  1. It’s actually a good idea to create a new environment before installing the new JupyterLab and Notebooks versions.

  2. Because the environment manager dictates the environments you can use in Jupyter, it’s simpler to launch from Navigator every time.

Hope that helps
