When you say "open Spyder through the Python34 folder", do you mean
you double-click on a file and use its Windows associations? If so,
the solution may be (depending on your setup) very easy - just make
sure Spyder has a shebang at the top.and it'll be invoked with the
right version of Python. Alternatively, simply create a shortcut to
C:/Python34/python.exe (or pythonw.exe, to suppress the console - this
is what a .pyw file will be associated with), passing it the name of
the Spyder file as an argument. That's probably the easiest solution -
it doesn't interfere with anything else on the system, doesn't change
associations, just gives you a way to run *this* Python and *that*
