How to record voice on recorded instrumental

How can I record my voiceover the instrumental I just recorded while also listening to and singing along with it. I used to be able with the old Audacity system I had years ago but with new computer downloaded the new version and cannot figure it out. Why can’t this be as simple as before. While listening to the one track with headphones and record the vocals over it.

Are you getting a specific error message? Error codes - Audacity Support

Thanks, after carefully reading the suggested topic and its material, I finally figured it out, thanks for your input. It’s funny though, now it’s a twostep process instead of one before but I’m sure there’s a very good reason for that.
