How to Uninstall PyTorch with Anaconda

Here is the step-by-step guide to uninstall PyTorch with Anaconda.

Step 1: Activate your Anaconda environment

Activate your Anaconda environment (if you have one specifically for PyTorch). If you don’t have a specific environment, you can skip this step.

conda activate your_environment_name

Step 2: Use the conda command to uninstall PyTorch

conda uninstall pytorch

Step 3: Uninstall other PyTorch-related packages

If you also installed torchvision or torchaudio (commonly used alongside PyTorch), you can also uninstall them.

conda uninstall torchvision torchaudio

Step 4: Verify the Uninstallation

To verify that PyTorch has been uninstalled, we can use the following command to list all the packages installed in the environment.

conda list

If PyTorch is no longer listed in the output, it has been uninstalled successfully.

Step 5: Deactivate the environment if you have activated it

conda deactivate

Note: Always back up any essential data or configurations before uninstalling any package to prevent accidental data loss.

Alternate ways to uninstall PyTorch with Anaconda

You can directly uninstall PyTorch with conda uninstall using this command:

That’s it!
