High CPU usage


High CPU usage



Im using windows 10 and every time i want to hear music, spotify uses 50% of my CPU. I already tried with un-/reinstall but it did not help. I also shut down some settings.

Hey @iMxMiKE, welcome to the Community.

Hope you are doing great!

Try to disable Hardware Acceleration, just click on the … top left corner, inside the View tab find Hardware Acceleration and next click on it to disable then confirm to restart Spotify.
Also, if you don't use local files try to disable them inside Settings.

Let me know how it goes :)
