I recently downloaded Spotify on my home laptop. I logged in to my regular account, the Spotify library updated itself with the music files on my iTunes, OK, everything's fine. As I go deleting my unwanted local files, I realize there are songs on my Spotify that I downloaded. Instead of the local files sign, there is instead a sign that seems to look like a paperclip, or two chains tied in together. The "delete" option is greyed out and unresponsive when I right-click these files. How can I remove these files? Many thanks.

Hey, welcome to the Community.
You can not remove track in Library view. Locate track from playlist, starred or locals and delete then.
If you do not want Locals at all, select all Locals and delete. Then go to Edit - Preferences and disable local files from folder you do not want to be scanned by unticking them. Do not worry, deleting locals from Spotify does not delete them from your hard drive.
Hope you enjoy Spotify.

I have files in "Library" that I don't believe I downloaded - artists I don't like or listen to. I can't delete them from the 'Library" and they are not in my local files. How do I get them out of my Library?
I've tried Right-click, delete button, backspace, tried to find them in my cache (apparently not a real location, BTW, as there is no file called "AppData") under my user name.

Sometimes Spotify import files that are in Windows by default.
If this is not at all a reason for you, could you take a screenshot where you see those odd files?
