Feedback through speakers when recording [SOLVED]

(I do voiceovers.) Have used audacity for 2 years. Previously I could record whilst speakers switched-on. Recently, though, I get feedback when recording with speakers switched-on. I guess it’s a settings issue. Please, can any one out there tell me how to amend settings so that I can record and playback without having to switch speaks on/off? Thanking in advance anyone who can resolve my issue. David

Audacity > Edit > Preferences > Recording: [_] Playthrough (de-select)


Thank-you-so-much, Koz. Did the trick. Saved me much time and stress. Again, thanks. Regards David
