Every time I open Audacity it is notifying me that an update is available - 3.3.3. The only way to get to the Audacity dashboard is to update each time. Very strange. Any suggestions for how to get out of this loop? Thank you.
Every time I open Audacity it asks me to update
There is no Audacity 3.3.3. Are you sure about that number?
Where did you download Audacity from? From here - https://www.audacityteam.org/download/ ?
Go to Audacity (menu) > Preferences > Application and uncheck “Check for updates”
Aside from having an adulterated copy of Audacity, it is quite possible that you have more than one version loaded on your machine. May I suggest uninstalling all versions of Audacity first, then downloading and installing a fresh copy from Bill’s link?
