After purchasing a new laptop with Windows 11, my delete feature isn't working

I recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 11. Prior to this, I was easily able to highlight and then delete a section of the audio track. Since switching to the new laptop, whether I delete from my computer delete button, or use the edit/delete function in Audacity, it only deletes the noise, not the space. So, it treats it like a split/cut instead of a full delete. I’ve tried loading an older version of Audacity but with the same issue. Please help! Thank you!

Sounds like you need to tick the Audcaity preference “Editing a clip can move other clips”Tracks Behaviors Preferences - Audacity Manual
