Dragging waveform

Would anyone agree with me that if the manual had a “How do I do” section it would be easier for beginners who know what they want to do but don’t know where to find it?
anyway - can anyone please tell me how to drag an audio waveform so that it matches zero on the timeline? In my case the recording started just a bit before the music started am using XP.+ exe.installer

It has Frequently Asked Questions ( http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq.html ). An HTML Manual has a problem that it cannot be searched unless online, but has some other advantages.

Time Shift Tool (press F5 on your keyboard), which is covered in this Frequently Asked Question:

You can try the Latency Test mentioned there to set up a latency correction that (if the latency is constant) will always align your recording correctly with the previous track.
