observing streaming waveform while recording

I have audacity 2.0 and windows vista. when I 1st began recording the waveform continued on after that first track window and now it stops frozen, but it does still record. I’m using a Yeti blue mic with usb. I’m sure I just messed up a setting somewhere. What does it sound like to you?

“Edit menu > Preferences > Tracks”
Select (tick) the option “Update display while playing”.

Thank you, Steve. Have a great weekend. Alisa60
