setup for a recording session/saving settings

Hi
New to Audacity 2.3.1 -Windows 8.1

  1. Once connected to pc and setup for and completed a recording session will the settings (ie MME /Sound card /Codec etc ) together with volume levels etc be saved such that when the pc is shut down and then switched on again all previous settings will be available and shown for a new recording session . Volume levels etc could then be modified if required. Any other advise/suggestions will be appreciated .
    Many thanks

Isn’t that what a Project does?

Its goal is to retain the operating environment when you stop working. It will not, however, save UNDO.
