Spotify desktop app starts at login even though disabled

iMac, Mojave

 

When I start up my computer and log in, Spotify automatically launches.

I have "Open Spotify automatically after you log into the computer" set to "No", yet it is still doing it. I read a solution on the Windows forum that I should disable the web player as well, but I don't see that option (see image).

Disable Spotify on Startup Tab on Task Manager, if you're on Windows 7, search "msconfig" instead.

Edit: Oh you're on Mac, I thought it's for Windows sorry for that. Just search something related to Startup on your Mac and disable there. I have literally no idea how to operate Mac.

Please go to system preferences -> Users and groups-> Account- > login items and remove the app from the list. 

Please accept it as answer if it works!

Thanks, but it's not in my login items list. 

 

I think what causes it to happen is that if I've been listening to Spotify and then I shutdown/reboot the computer, it re-launches apps that were open during the last session. The last few times I've booted the computer Spotify hasn't launched, but then that is likely because I didn't have Spotify open before the previous shutdown.
