No response on any button or menu right after load

According to the install file this is version 3.1.3 “audacity-win-3.1.3-64bit.exe”

My PC:
Processor Intel(R) Core™ i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz 3.19 GHz
Windows 10 Home
Version 21H2
Operativsystemets build 19044.1415
Visning Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0



No response on any button or any menu. It happens right after application load. It does not even respond to “X” Exit to close the app.

Remove and reinstall helps but only a short time ( next day same issue).

I think I have solved the problem.

I changed the microphone from one channel (mono) to 2 channels(stereo) while Audacity was listening to it. I got a warning from windows that it could be a bad idea but I ignored the warning.
Somehow it turned into a permanent error in Audacity. I assume because of some configuration setup in the Appdata/Roaming folder.

To solve the problem, I did the following:
Remove Audacity
delete Appdata/Local/Audacity
Delete Appdata/Roaming/Audacity
Run CCleaner to make sure everything regarding Audacity is removed.
Setup microphone to 2 channels 48KHz.
Install Audacity.

Now everything works :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
