    Documentation states that:

    ...You cannot switch between versions of Python in a single MATLAB session... If you want to change versions, restart MATLAB and then run pyenv with the new version information.

    Set Python Version on Windows Platform
    On Windows® platforms, use either:

    pyenv('Version','version')
    

    or

    pyenv('Version','executable')
    

    Note: If you downloaded a Python interpreter, but did not register it in the Windows registry, use:

    pyenv('Version','executable')
    

    Set Python Version on Mac and Linux Platforms
    To set the version, type:

    pyenv('Version','executable')
    

    where executable is the full path to the Python executable file.
