Hi there, I’m not new to Audacity and had it on my old computer. Just redownloaded on my new laptop running windows 10. It is not able to record? I seem to recall years ago when I first downloaded this that there was a separate file I had to download to have in the Audacity folder prior to it working. Does anyone know the file I mean? As right now, no matter what I cahange the preferences to, its not picking up sound from the computer. The playhead doesnt move at all. Cheers
Your new Windows computer may be hiding recording devices like “stereo mix”, here’s how to show them …
If that doesn’t solve the problem, select WASAPI as the recording device to record the computer speakers.
