No playback

I was using Audacity fine and then I closed it. When I opened it again and recorded a track this time it would not playback. I tried all the settings MME, windows direct sound, and windows WASAPI, and nothing work. I tested my speakers outside of audacity and they work fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled audacity but the problem remains. When i click play the play bar does not move across the track, it stays stuck in a given time
like it’s frozen.

Hi, shannam12. Try this: (from:

Resetting Preferences

Resetting Preferences can sometimes fix freezes, crashes or unexplained Audacity behavior.

You can reset Preferences to factory defaults by using the Tools > Reset Configuration command.

Notice you’ll lose configurations you may’ve done (can modify again in the preferences).

Have you tried rebooting your computer?
