How to Change the Pandas Version in Windows

You can change the Pandas version in Windows using this command:

pip install pandas==pandas version needed --user

For example, if the Pandas version needed is 1.1.1, then open the Windows Command Prompt and type/copy the command below:

pip install pandas==1.1.1 --user

Note that the above method would work only if you added Python to Windows path. Don’t worry if you don’t know what it means, as you’ll see the full steps to change the Pandas version in the next section.
