Delete Audio Completely


I am using Windows 11 and Audacity 2.3.3. I am wondering how I can delete audio from the end of a recording. I tried edit cut but it left silence that it just plays through at the end. What is the right way to make the recording stop at the desired point? Thanks for the help!

Select the audio you want deleted, then press “Ctrl”+“D” on your keyboard.

Thank you for your response! I tried that and it duplicates the section and puts it in a different audio track. Any ideas? Thanks!

Sorry my mistake :blush: it’s “Ctrl”+“X”

Thanks for your reply. Works great! I appreciate your help!
