My Question or Issue
Recently I've done a clean uninstall of Spotify because it was taking up a large amount of space on my drive and then reinstalled it. Since then, I've been getting low frame rates with the Spotify App when focusing on the App (I know it's a minor inconvenience but I do notice it when I switch between windows). I have tried doing a clean uninstall, but nothing has changed. The Spotify App works smoothly on my laptop, which just had Spotify installed on it, so I am unsure what the cause of this is.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I found a fix!
In NVIDIA Control Panel, go to "Manage 3D Settings" near the top of the left window, click the "Program Settings" tab, then add "Spotify.exe" to the list of programs. It's located in "C:\Users\*name*\AppData\Roaming\Spotify". Once you do that, go to the setting called "Monitor Technology" and change it to "Fixed Refresh." After this, the desktop app should run smoothly like it did before.
