Hi. The Audacity program on my Mac has recently started to automatically import audio files that I download, even though I’ve never set it to do so. Is there any way to set it not to do automatic imports? Thanks.
Two things that you can do:
Disable Safari’s ‘Open Safe Files After Downloading’ Feature.
There’s an article about this here: https://www.lifewire.com/disable-open-safe-files-after-downloading-in-safari-446562
Associate the file type that Audacity is automatically opening with another application.

Thanks so much Steve. Works fine now.
