How can I separate two tracks on audacity on my laptop

Hey everyone. I need a little bit of help. I’m trying to separate two different audio files on two different tracks. Every time when I want to move just one track, the other follows with it. How can I fix this? Also, I’m doing this on my laptop, which might be a reason why, but I don’t know. I would appreciate any help that can help me get this file done.

Thanks a lot,

Is one above the other? Click on the track name above the waveform and you can drag it left or right.

If it’s a stereo track (left & right) you’ll have to split the stereo track. And make sure the “Keep Synchronized” is not selected under the Tracks menu.
