Mono/Stereo Settings?

I’ve been told to try Audacity to help my voice recordings not be in the left only as solving that issue requires me to use mono. I’ve been clicking around in everything I can find in the program but cannot find stereo/mono settings. Where are they? I have version 2.3.2. (Please do not tell me to upgrade.)

In the [u]Device Toolbar[/u], select “1 (Mono) Recording Channels”.

For the recordings where you have stereo with the left side only, click the little drop-down arrow to the left of the waveforms and select “Split Stereo to Mono”. When you export you’ll get a mono file that will play out of both speakers.
