save project in file menu is greyed out

i successfully recorded a project, but when I tried to save it. the save project fselection in the file menu was greyed out and would not work. How can I fix this?
I am running windows xp pro
Thank you

You have probably only “Paused” your recording (or started recording again). You need to make sure that you “Stop” the recording before Audacity will activate the Save Project menu items.
