Spotify steals focus Mac + Cmd-tab + multiple desktops

Spotify steals focus Mac + Cmd-tab + multiple desktops

One of the latest versions of Spotify on my Mac all of a sudden steals focus when I cmd-tab to it.


I use multiple desktops (spaces?) and always leave Spotify on Desktop 1 on my Mac.  I usually do work in some other desktop, say Desktop 2.  In my settings I have "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application" UNCHECKED.  Before I used to be able to play/pause by cmd-tabbing to the Spotify app, hitting the spacebar and then cmd-tabbing back to the app I work in.


Now, all of a sudden I'm transported over to Desktop 1.  Can this get fixed?!  Is there some `defaults` command I can run in the terminal to bring back the old behavior?


For that matter, can you just make Spotify honor my preference Under Mission Control in the System Preferences?

I find this super annoying too!

Oh wow. Thankfully I'm not the only one but it doesn't look likely that this will get fixed? Extremely annoying to grab focus all the time.

Plase fix this Spotify. This is too annoying.
