Not able to run Matplotlib using a venv as the interpreter

Hi dear all :slight_smile:

I am new to the Anaconda environment (and Python for that matter) and presently confused over many things. I am using VS Code for Python.

I have created a virtual environment on Anaconda Navigator but am not being able to run matplotlib when I choose the virtual environment as my interpreter path. However if I choose Anaconda “Base” as the interpreter path then there is no issue with running matplotlib. The Base is using a previous version of Python and I wish to be interpreting with the venv I created, which is of the laterst version.

I can also see that in my Anaconda folder, which is in my D drive, there is a Matplotlib folder. So I am assuming that the standard Anaconda package comes with this library.

Please help, thank you :slight_smile:
