I just opened up Audacity (running on Windows 7 SP1 HOMEPREMIUM ) to do some work and it totally is changed from what it was a couple of days ago. I opened it to find Audacity 2.0.0. Two days ago, it was 1.2.6.
It is so different that I can barely figure out how to use it.
How did it just change? Was it somehow automatically changed by Audacity? I know I didn’t change it.
How can I change it back. I have work I’ve promised to deliver later this week. I don’t have time to learn how to use 2.0.0 and get the work done.
There was a 2.0.0 release, but 2.0.1 followed quite soon after so you may have missed it.
Audacity does not automatically update itself. The only way that you can have Audacity 2.0.0 on your computer is if someone put it on.
If you can use Audacity 1.x you should have little difficulty in using 2.x as so much is so similar. Audacity 2.x has some new features and substantial improvements to many of the old features, but the basic operation is pretty much the same.
Audacity 1.2.6 was never recommended for Vista because of several known, serious compatibility problems.
