Help with Audacity 2.0.1

I have downloaded Audacity onto my laptop and am attempting to edit my recordings.

Basically, what I am trying to do is delete a few seconds here or there that are unnecessary. Also, I want to generate a silence between two sections which I did not pause long enough.

Now here is my problem, Where I am clicking in audacity sort of isn’t being registered.

You can see in my screencap I am trying to click the little space between the two sounds, But it is actually clicking at the end of my first sound. I can’t figure out how to make it let me click where I want

can anyone help me?

Clear the “Snap To” checkbox.


Thank you so much! I’m new to this program.
