How/where can I download Audacity 2.4.2?

Hi everyone,

One of the guys on the staff advised me recently to get a new laptop and then download Audacity version 2.4.2 (because I have had very good luck with it) and my old laptop has some problems. I just got a new one today (an HP Envy X360 with Windows 11). I have tried to locate Audacity version 2.4.2 tonight to download and install, but am not able to find it. I have accidently downloaded the latest version of Audacity tonight (twice!!) and had to uninstall it each time. Firstly, can Audacity version 2.4.2 work on a laptop with Windows 11? And, secondly, where can I find 2.4.2 online so that I can download it?

Many thanks,

hey i have it, if all else fails…

Old versions can be downloaded from here:


Thank you all for the input. The info. Peter gave is very helpful. I will go right to and download the appropriate version.
