Have to reinstall every time i close the app

I'm running high sierra (10.13.6).  I frequently close all of my applications just to save on memory, etc.  However, whenever i close spotify and subsequently try to re-open it, spotlight search cant find it and the only item with a matching name is the spotify installer, so i effectively have to reinstall the app every time i want to open it.

 

In fact, even when I have the app open and do a search for spotify, either in spotlight or in finder, it doesn't show up in the results:

Is there any way to stop this from happening?

Hey @lunface, Welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

It seems like your Spotlight needs a reindx, you can use this support article from Apple on how to perform it.

 

I'd also recommend updating to macOS Moajve 10.14.2.


Hope it helps :)
