# python – ‘conda activate’ not actually activating a virtual env

I’m having a problem that conda activate would never actually activate the virtual environment and looking for a solution to fix it.
It happens like this:

$conda --version conda 4.13.0$conda info -e
base   *  C:\Users\hoge\anaconda3
py38      C:\Users\hoge\anaconda3\envs\py38
$conda activate py38$conda info -e
base   *  C:\Users\hoge\anaconda3
py38      C:\Users\hoge\anaconda3\envs\py38


I’ve heard that conda install -n root -c pscondaenvs pscondaenvs would fix this and tried it, but it never caused any difference.

Does anyone know how to solve the problem? Thanks
