Kudos on launch speed of 2.1.1

Just started using this version and was totally surprised by how fast it opens. My old version took forever. Audacity’s the greatest! :slight_smile:

The 2.1.x series also has greatly improved audio processing tools.

For what it’s worth, there has not been any general fix to slow startup times. 2.1.1 and 2.1.2-alpha can take up to 40 seconds to launch for me using a spinning hard disk drive (HDD) on Windows 7 x64 (6 GB RAM). It’s quicker on Windows 8.1 and 10 which are a good deal “lighter” than Windows 7.
