Volume gradually increases while recording

Hello, I’ve been using Audacity for a long time to record narration. Recently I got a new laptop running Windows 10 and downloaded Audacity.
I’m finding that when I record the volume gradually increases all on its own. I can’t figure out what setting needs to be adjusted. Help! Attached is a screenshot of what I’m experiencing.

Thanks for your reply.

Make sure [u]Windows Enhancements[/u] are turned OFF.

Audacity doesn’t mess-with the audio during recording but sometimes Windows does. (And applications like Zoom or Skype will sometimes enable these Windows settings.)

Thanks for your quick reply.
That did it.
I made the change and restarted Audacity and now I can record.

Thanks so much.
