Spotify App for Mac always opens upon startup.

Hello all,

 

I have the app for my desktop Mac. Under settings, you can select the behavior to open the app automatically when you start the computer; either Yes, No, or Minimized. Regardless of my selection, the app open in a large window. Anyone else? Any advice? I don't always want Spotify everytime I turn on my Mac. Thx!

Hi @nuveenamjed, welcome to the community!

 

In your Mac, go to System Preferences - User & Groups - Login Items and remove Spotify.

 

Let me know if this works :)

Hi, this did not work for me.  It continues to open automatically when i start my computer.  What's up with that?

I tried this too after doing some research on the fix, but this still didn't work for me. is it only possible to deselect this option if you have premium?

Hey @dkcookie37

 

That's odd. What's your device and OS?
