permission

I had Audacity for some time now with no issues. I moved to a new location and now I can’t seem to get permission from my computer to move my music to my Audacity file. It says " you don’t have permission. contact the administrator to obtain permission". I’m not a computer nerd, so I really need someones help, please.

What version of Audacity are you using (all three numbers)? See the pink panel at the top of the page.

What exactly did you move to a new location?

Are you using File > Save Project… in Audacity? That only saves a file for Audacity. Windows Media Player won’t play it. Use File > Export Audio if you want Windows Media Player to play the song.

What you can do when you save or export is click in “Save in:” at the top of the window and select your own Music or Documents folder to save to. That will work. Or there may be a button you can click on the left of the export or save window that will let you change the save location to your Desktop.
