Considering this issue was covered 4 years ago in these posts...and I just installed and attempted to uninstall with the same results - failure of control panel to uninstall.  Manually ending the process in Task Manager and deleted Spotify manually was successful.  My question is...WHY the **bleep** hasn't Spotify included an uninstaller with there software??  I will never use it again.

I realised four years ago Spotify is an advertising platform , just happens to have some music that we all like . So we get hooked in on their music offer to then be trapped by their advertising (or we pay Spotify NOT to receive their adverts'....!!) nasty business ethics

In Win-7 tried 10 times in Control Panel clicking on the Uninstall bar up top. Finally, I right-clicked on Spotify in Control Panel and this time it asked for uninstall confirmation, clicked OK, then it was uninstalled. Not sure why, but happy.

These instructions apply to WHAT operating system, please?  Windows 10?  Mac OS?  They sure don't apply to Windows 7.

The real issue here, as a former software tester myself, is that the Spotify app, does not UNINSTALL properly, at least in Windows 7 Pro.  I installed it in July, now it won't uninstall using the standard Windows Control Panel uninstall utility.

This is clearly a software bug.  All Windows programs should be able, nowadays, to smoothly install and uninstall.  

Spotify Development needs to get busy on a fix.

I have uninstalled from the control panel 100 times and it never executes. It doesn't give me an error it just does nothing. I have rebooted my computer and still nothing.
