My Question or Issue
This is a bug I've been getting for a while now on the desktop/software version of Spotify. Whenever I use the quick find feature to find something in my playlist without having to scroll through 700+ songs, if I choose a song, the shuffle will only play random songs out of the ones that popped up via the search rather than playing random songs from the whole playlist. I know that might've been a little confusing, so for example, if I searched for an Eminem song in the playlist by typing in "Eminem", and choose the song I was looking for, the shuffle now only plays other songs that popped up, making it so that only Eminem songs will play now rather than songs from my whole playlist. Another example, if I search for a specific song like "6 Foot 7 Foot", and click on it, since that's the only song in my playlist with that name, that's the only thing that popped up obviously, but it won't play any other song once that song is over. One last example in case it's still confusing, I have 4 different BeatBox remixes in my playlist, the NLE Choppa, Polo G, Dababy, and Shenseea ones, and if I put in "BeatBox", only those 4 songs pop up but if I choose the one I want to listen to, let's say Polo's in this case, then instead of proceeding to shuffle random songs from my entire playlist, it will only play those 3 songs next in a random order. With this glitch the only way I can actually listen to my playlist on shuffle regularly when selecting a specific song is by clicking on it without searching, in which I would have to scroll through my 700 and counting songs and find it.

Thanks for getting back in touch.
We can confirm that it's expected behavior of the app.
Keep in mind that the Play queue is generated depending on the song/album/playlist you play first, but it will change if you start playing something else.
If you listen to a playlist, but then you filter the songs in it and click play from one of songs you filtered, a new Play queue will start based on those results only.
If you start listening to an album/playlist and want to continue listening to it after playing a specific song you found after filtering, you need to make sure to add that song to the queue so the original Play queue isn't affected.
