My Question or Issue

When I launch Spotify, it always launches on my primary monitor, instead of the second one. Please read this through, this isn't the issue with the desktop icon, simply the app. It is very enervating. I have gone through a full reinstall, but still, primary monitor spotify choses.

Hi there @LucaForever,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Can you try to maximize the Spotify app on your secondary monitor and then switch it off. Once you launch it again it should open on the secondary monitor. I'm running a dual monitor set up and it works like that for me.

 

If that doesn't do the trick try going into windows settings and change which monitor is set to Primary and which to secondary. As on some systems this will have an effect on some apps.

 

Hope this helps.

Hey @LucaForever

 

Help’s here!
 

If what you tried so far didn't help you might need to try running a clean reinstall after cleaning up the hosts file on your PC. To do this, simply follow the steps described here.   

 

In case you need more help with the clean reinstall, check out this help page. 

 

Tip: Once you’ve performed the clean reinstall you'll need to re-download your offline music and podcasts. 

 

Let us know how you get on! We'll be here in case you need any further help with this.

This does not help, as I even mentioned I did multiple reinstalls, and again, to no avail.

Please give me an actual response, not a bot message.

I fixed this by downgrading, but now I have the infamous problem that everyone was mentioning that the icon starts on the wrong screen. But thank you for at least reading my reply.
