New Feature To Try On Desktop: Quick Search Shortcuts

New Feature To Try On Desktop: Quick Search Shortcuts

Hey folks,

 

The Spotify team is always working to make the software as simple as possible for everyone to use, and for those of you who like to save a bit of time by using keyboard shortcuts, there's a very convenient trick that you may not have noticed on the desktop.

 

Try typing [CTRL]+[K] (on Windows) or [Cmd]+[K] (on Mac), and this will open up a quick search box overlay where you can immediately start typing what you’re looking for and receive suggested results instead of having to open up the full search page first. Hopefully, this is something a lot of you find useful that will get you to the music you love even faster!

Bonus tip: These same shortcuts should also work for you if you’re using the web player.

 

Give it a try, and let us know what you think in the comments!

oh yaah i was asking the same questions here is the my website URL but i have some questions for my website

Great feature. I would be useful to have the usual context menu for each item, with add to queue, add to playlist etc...

I have hidden some songs. Now I want to restore them. What option should I choose?

Here is another tip:

 

The desktop app and web player have a shortcuts popup window that will show you a full list of shortcuts by pressing the following keys.

Is there eny option, how to sort songs in playlist by genres? In example i would like to play only EDM songs from playlist where are every kind of genres.

It would also be good if there was shortcut to instantly play selected item from Quick Search, like CTRL+Enter

Cool! Great shortcut for me as I don't save the songs I like 😁

It would also be beneficial if there was a shortcut , such as CTRL+Enter, for playing a selected item from Quick Search immediately.

great!
