New to Audacity for podcasting – last night all was good- today can no longer see blue wave forms when recording. Audio plays back fine and I can see wave forms then, however - when recording the screen moves but is blank. Any ideas?? I have uninstalled Audacity and reinstalled, still not working. Thx
Which version of Audacity? (Look in: “Help menu > About Audacity”).
If you are using an old version, the current Audacity 2.3.1 version is available via the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/
Did you install Audacity with the “EXE Installer”?
Yes and Yes

So if you press record and say “Testing one two three,” there are no waves on the screen, but they pop into view when you press stop?
There are Audacity settings which can record perfectly well, but do it off the screen on the right.
