New Spotify 0.8.8 interface.


Under windows on the main screen I don't understand the meaning of the check mark or plus sign st thr first colum. Also I have some music that have the artist or album or date added grayed. Also before the added colum the are icons ( chain and a music note on certain files that I don't know their meaning. Please look at the image  and if possible some explanation of those question since nothing was found in your help files.

Far left colum:


check mark = added to your music collection 

plus sign = not added to your music collection (click to add)



Far right colum:


music note = you have added this track as a local file (.MP3 on your computer)

paperclip = this song is linked to the same song but in a different location (for example if a single is released and then that song is also on a new album by the artist, it will usually link the single to the album version)

If you appreciate my answer, maybe give me a Like.

I forgot to ask also if it's possible to know which files are linked by the papaer clip as you mentioned in your response.

The way it is now is difficult to  guess and try to remove double versions of the same music.


thanks again
