Firstly, I don't use this plug-in myself, but I think the idea of the "isolate changes" feature is that you would run that on a duplicate copy of the track (or part of a track) so that you can see more easily what exactly the effect will remove when you apply it normally.

You can make a duplicate copy by:
1. Select the audio that you want to copy
2. "Ctrl + D" (or "Edit menu > Duplicate")

I'm having trouble with the De-Clicker crashing if I try to process over an hour of audio at once. Is it possible to fix this?

I'd suggest that you take that as a recommendation, though you could try asking him to fix it. He can be contacted via the Audacity developer's mailing list (see: https://www.audacityteam.org/contact/mailing-lists/)

Can someone help me download this program using windows? I am having trouble downloading this app at all to open into an Audacity plugin folder. My computer isn't allowing me to download it into any program

Which "app" are you trying to download?

I am trying to download the De-esser plugin but am unsure how to upload it into Audacity. It seems like it is very straightforward for a Mac, but in windows, what would be the appropriate place? I cannot access an Audacity plugin folder.

If you have the .NY file you can simply drag it into the plug-ins folder. Or you can run Tools -> Nyquist Plug-in Installer.

Then go to Tools -> Add/Remove Plug-ins to enable it.
I cannot access an Audacity plugin folder.
Are you an administrator on your computer?

Yes, I am! I am not a computer-savvy individual, but my audacity program only exists as a program I can click on. I cannot find any plugin folders in my applications for windows. Does this make sense? I cannot drag the download into anything...it wants me to immediately open it and I am unable to. What is the best way to download the Nyquist plugin installer?
