My Question or Issue
I signed out of all accounts and came back to my desktop app looking like the Web Player Version, when right before it was the old interface. I can't stand this new interface and have already tried to change it in the "prefs" file, but I may not have entered it right. Is there any way I can get back to the old UI, I despise this one as a frequent Spotify Desktop user since 2013. This UI is much more difficult to roam.
Hey there @KingGodCurse, your feedback on the UI is appreciated, but I'm sorry to say there is not a way to revert to the previous design. Please feel free to continue to comment on any changes you'd like to see, and especially to vote on or submit ideas about the new UI here.
As this board is preventing my from sharing a URL, Google "reverting_to_the_classic_desktop_ui" to find the answer.
Thanks for that! This works.
That is not correct. You can switch to the classic UI in the prefs configuration file.
How does that work?
I love Spotify but this new UI is absolutely garbage.
Search functionality often fails.
Super difficult to find out what albums an artist has.
Could not agree more. New UI is just a step back in all areas:
- super hard to figure out what albums an artist has
- can't view the entire discography in one list
- search functionality is hidden away
But anyway, happy that with a simple one line hack, can go back to the old UI. Works for me 🙂
I, too, switched back to Classic mode. I would list out everything I despise about the new UI but I don't have all day. I'm sure the developers will remove the ability to use classic mode soon (Spotify is good at removing features). I will just have to enjoy it while it lasts.
Ahah THAAAAAAANKS!! It works!! 🙂
And for those who installed from Microsoft Store:
