Shortcut to launch a new project that will automatically start recording once it's loaded

Hi Audacity,

Do you happen to know if it’s feasible with Tenacity or Audacity?

I’m interested in setting up a shortcut, possibly with a run argument, that, when double-clicked, initiates a new project and begins recording automatically. This way, I can launch the application and start recording an audio note with just a single click, reducing the number of steps needed.

Not with Audacity. Have looked at AutoHotKey ?

So, you’re suggesting that I should create an AHK script to initiate the launch of Audacity and, after a brief delay, send a specific hotkey command?

Of course!!

Run, "C:\Program Files\Tenacity\tenacity.exe"
Sleep, 3000 ; 3-second delay
Send, r
