it's really slowing down my  elderly but still perfectly useable Dell laptop... would just like to CHOOSE when it loads of not. If anyone can point me to where I can change this setting I'd be v grateful!

Hi, and welcome to the Community!

 

You can go to Edit>preferences, scroll down and click the selection of 'Don't open Automatically'

That's the answer I was looking for, too. However, I can not access my edit menu no matter what I try. I am running windows 7 Pro and my Spotify version is 0.1.0.26.

Hey! :) 

 

It sounds like you have got the weird web/desktop preview client rather than the full desktop client. 

Try downloading and installing the full client from: http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe

thanks for the help  . . . .

In the MAC 0S version do the following:

 

1.  open Sportify program

2.  select "Spotify" at top of your screen, not in the Spotify program  window but computer screen window

3.  select "Preferences"    . . . . and  then select the last option within this area called " Open Spotify automatically after you log into th computer"  . . . . then select " Don't open automatically."
