Sometimes, you might not be happy with the toolbars that are available in Audacity. If your favourite toolbar is not accessible or visible on the Audacity display screen there are multiple toolbars which provide quick access to the best software functions for audio editing.
All the functions in Audacity are run by particular toolbar. And to run every function, we need access to all the toolbars available in Audacity.

As a result, Audacity offers you a wide range of toolbars in its View section, where you simply have to click on the checkmark to have the tool you wish to have access.
