[Mac Desktop] Spotify Window can't be unminified

[Mac Desktop] Spotify Window can't be unminified




Macbook Pro Early 2015


Operating System

Mac Os Catlina 10.15.5 (19F101)


My Question or Issue


After some period of time minified Spotify window can't be opened again, "Show all windows" option shows it as a transparent window(screenshot attached)


Note: This issue may be caused by Quitter app that automatically minifies (hides) defined apps.


Please fix this asap, very annoying as it requires me to restart the app and takes a quite some time (especially to quit)

Experienced same issue after I installed the App. No matter what I did I couldn’t get window to appear after initial installation. 

What worked for me:

Closed the App. Moved App to Bin. 
Moved App back into Applications. 
Opened Spotify. Window now showing. 
Open Preferences. 
Under ‘Start-up and window behaviour’ change drop-down menu from ‘Minimised’ to ‘No’
