recording issue

since i downloaded the upgrade i am having major problems …why does my recording start at the end of the track instead of the beginning ? what am I doing wrong? I am on windows 10. RGD

A few versions ago the default recording mode was changed from “record to new track” to “append record”.
Since that change, to record to a new track you need to press “Shift + R” or “Shift + Record button”.

The old way is still available if you prefer. Enable the “Record on a new track” option in Preferences (see: Recording Preferences - Audacity Manual)
