System requirements

Audacity is tested on Windows 10 & Windows 11, and may also work on Windows 8.1, 7 and Vista. Both 64-bit and 32-bit versions are available. Audacity has no specific CPU or GPU requirements and should be able to run on any notebook or PC that can run aforementioned operating systems.
