How to choose which track to record over?

Sorry, a basic first time user question. In my other Audio Editors on each channel as well as Mute and Solo toggles I have a record toggle thus in a multi track recording I can choose to record over any track, or re-record part of a track from the cursor. In Audacity when I git the Record button it automatically creates a new track. I’m hoping someone can show me a way to choose which track I want to record on.

Audacity doesn’t have smash record. You can select a track and press Append-Record (Shift-R.) Audacity will jam the new work on the end of the old track.

You can also select a point in an existing track and press Record. Audacity will start a new track at that time position.
