Re-scan VST?

In earlier versions of Audacity, there was a checkbox in the plug-in management window for re-scanning plug-ins. No longer there. How do I get Audacity to do a completely new scan for all plug-ins?

I believe that’s what the Effects Manager does now.

Effect > Add / Remove Plugins.


OK, so the scan is done automatically whenever that manager window is brought up? I can just click the “New” radio button to see everything that may have come up in the re-scan?


For everything it’s “all” rather than “new”.

Hi onlyleura

For future queries please don’t forget to tell us what version of Audacity you are using (all three numbers from Audacity > About Audacity… ). This makes it much easier to answer your question.
