Audacity freezes while recording (while using microphone)
This been happening lately, before it wasn’t happening and I need an urgent answer because have uploading something before Monday, help!

I can’t tell what you’re doing. As near as I can see, there’s a lot of chaos on the screen and most people don’t start out with three tracks, so what are you doing in words?

Have you cold started the machine? Shift-Shutdown, wait and then Start. Regular shutdown or restart doesn’t reset all the Windows processes.

Don’t start any other apps. How much drive space do you have?

What kind of microphone and how is it connected?

Side note, not once do you mention the Audacity version and that’s important in a training video. That looks like menu bar layout in a really early Audacity.
