I have to delete the cache every month, because the app starts slower and slower every time. Don't tell me to reinstall 😡
(btw I just posted a working solution here and it got deleted in a few minutes, so please tell me another solution.)
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm putting this out there, because this issue is still present for more than year and because the Spotify staff are a bunch useless tools. They always tell us to reinstall the app, that works too, but takes a lot of time. This solution is faster
So if the cache gets too big the app can take minutes to start. Here's how to fix it.
Open Run (win+R) type %localappdata% this will open your AppData folder.
Go to Local\Packages\Spotifyxxxxxxxxxx(different name for everyone)
There will be 2 folders in LocalCache\Spotify\ Browser and Data. Delete these, don't start the program yet.
After you deleted them go to LocalState\Spotify there's a prefs file, open it with notepad and add this at the end storage.size=1024 now start the app.
If you delete the two folders the app will already start fast. Didn't test the storage.size thing yet, but it is supposed to keep your cache under 1 gig, no more slow start ups hopefully.
