 I just installed Miniconda locally so I can do straight python programming with no interference from the ArcGIS Pro installer etc.

I installed it here:

C:\Clones\Miniconda3

and then ran: 

conda install -c anaconda spyder

and created a short cut in the usual fashion:

Target:  C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe "C:\Clones\Miniconda3\Scripts\spyder-script.py"

Start in: C:\Clones\Miniconda3

But the short cut fails to open spyder.  Nothing happens at all. I can run the new version of spyder by going to start and entering spyder there; works fine.  Not sure why my shortcut fails...

That should just about do it....

Installation — Anaconda documentation 

If you have Miniconda or an older version of Anaconda installed, you can install Navigator from an Anaconda Prompt by running the command conda install anaconda-navigator.

To start Navigator, see Getting Started.

I would use Anaconda Navigator if it was in the distribution.

Anaconda Navigator — Anaconda documentation 

or from the prompt.

I only used the shortcut for Pro work.

I prefer separate machines for different messing-around-with-stuff

Good luck

Ha..  You saw this just before I went to delete it.  I cheated, and at the start command I typed in spyder, and instead of running it, I selected 'open file location' and then copied the short cut from the install directory.

target: C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe C:\Clones\Miniconda3\cwp.py C:\Clones\Miniconda3 C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe C:\Clones\Miniconda3\Scripts\spyder-script.py

start in:"C:\Users\Public\Documents\Python Scripts"‍‍‍

A little different than what I'm used to seeing...  ( Navigator must not install with Miniconda, I can't seem to find it...)

That should just about do it....
