I have the same issue. I also have the issue when I open Spotify, it opens full screen, but the app glitches and shows up like its open in a "restored down" window. I have to click the restore down button and then the maximize button to get it to refresh and display correctly.
Windows 7 and I'm using the Basic Windows Theme. This has been ongoing for over a year now.
SPOTIFY-devs : Pressing F5, or minimizing Spotify to taskbar, and closing it by left mouse click is not a solution, it is a workaround. It's unacceptable of your moderators/admins to mark that as a solution. The community has known of this workaround for years, but it's not a fix.
I have everything except for "Desktop Composition" enabled in Windows 7 Appearance settings, and I have this problem with Spotify on two different computers... it is definitely the problem... enabling Desktop Composition fixes the closing issue with Spotify, but I don't want to use Desktop Composition, because it messes with an older game that I play often still... I see that this has been an issue with Spotify since around 2015 and they haven't bothered to address it. GG, Team $potify!
I shouldn't have to upgrade to Windows10. the app version I got was for Vista yet there is a screen persistence problem. I saw this mentioned in a post 3 years ago yet no solution to the problem only a work around. Super lame! Spotify has nice music but crappy developers!
