I’ve been recording with Audacity 2.3.3 in Windows 8.1 with an external audio interface, and exporting my file on a USB flash drive for over a month with no problems, until this week. I upgraded my computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, assuming that it would be compatible. I can click on playback which works fine, but when I try to record any instrument or microphone, Audacity will not recognize it.I love this version 2.3.3, I can easily do what I would like to do with it, but trying to fix an issue is not easy for me. There must be a solution for this problem but I just can’t seem to find it. NOTE: recording a new file from Windows 10 works fine, it’s just when I try to record on my existing file from my USB Flash Drive that it will not record. Your input on this issue would be much appreciated.

Possibly this W10 privacy setting …

Microphone activated, still not working.

Recording with my flash drive, which was recorded on Windows 8.1, still won’t record on Windows 10.
