Steve, that more elegant solution occurred to me after I posted. My only
concern is that inexperienced users (or perhaps it was just me) can be
confused by tracks starting at different points. It is easy visually but
one needs to be more on ones toes when using a screen reader.

Assuming that you are using the current Audacit 2.1.2:
1) Import the tracks one at a time into the same project in the order
that you want them to play.
The tracks will appear in Audacity one above the other (all start at time zero).
2) when they are all imported, press Ctrl+A to select all,
3) from the Tracks menu select "Align Tracks > Align End to End"
You can now check that the tracks play as required.
4) Export in the required format ("File menu > Export Audio")

following successfully with combining tracks from two Audacity projects and
also combining a wav and an mp3 file. If one file is stereo and the other
mono, life will be more complicated. I will not discuss that issue unless
you report the problem. The lengths of your files will not be a concern.
Open the first file in Audacity. Then open the second file in Audacity.
That should give you two instances of Audacity, one with the first file and
the other with the second.
In the copy of Audacity containing your second file, ensure that the track
is selected (pressing Enter toggles selection). Press j to go to the
beginning of the track. Then, press shift-k to select to the end of the
track. And then press control-c to copy the contents.
Alt-tab to the copy of Audacity containing your first file. Again, ensure
that the track is selected. Press k to go to the end of the track. Press
control-v to paste the contents of the second file. Job done.

Hello. My name is Governor Staten. I reside in Chattanooga Tn. I've used
Audacity for quite some time, but, have never really been proficient with
it. Now, I"m trying to learn. I have a question in that regard.
I want to take two files and make them into one file. If it matters, the
first file is many more times longer than the second file. I would like to
take the second file and add it onto the end of the first file. Any help
with this will be much appreciated.
