Follow button not working

Follow button not working

Whenever I try to follow a playlist the button changes from follow to unfollow but it goes back to follow after I click it. I attached a short gif showing my problem. How can I fix this?

Hey @sammythebeast18! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That doesn't sound quite right.
Have you tried restarting your app?.
Let us know if that helps, thanks! ^^

Peace

I restarted the app before and after making the video and it didnt work. I can follow playlists on the web app but not on the desktop version

Have you tried reinstalling your app? If not here's a step by step tutorial.^^

I've been trying to reinstall spotify for the last hour but every time I try I get a window saying "You do not have sufficient access to uninstall Spotify." I've tried to edit the registry to fix it but Spotify isn't listed, I tried to change the permissions of the Spotify folder but I get the error "Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied." Is there another way to fix this?

Hmm, have you tried to run the installer as an Administrator ?

 

Peace

The installer doesn't let you run it as an admin. I also tried running it normally but that doesn't help me uninstall the Spotify I already have.

That fix did not work but I found another one that did.

 

For some reason my computer wont let me use Spotify when launched from the appdata folder. A year ago I fixed this by copying the Spotify folder to my 2nd hard drive and have been using it from there ever since. Since I did that the client must have been updated but since I moved the folder any update I downloaded installed in the appdata folder and not in the folder I was launching Spotify from. I then moved the Spotify folder from the appdata folder to my second hard drive and it updated and worked!
