Problem has existed since at least 24th December 2019
When I go into Liked Songs on Spotify Desktop for Windows, then hit Ctrl + A, it only selects the top 100 songs in the list, whereas in the past it used to select all. If I scroll down quite a way and then hit Ctrl + A, it selects a seemingly random selection of songs around where I scrolled to, sometimes with gaps. If I keep scrolling through to different points and hitting Ctrl + A I can eventually select all the songs but then the right click menu doesn't appear when I click on them, so I can't actually do anything.
Most of the time when I shuffle the Liked Songs it only shuffles songs from those top 100, however, if I play around with Ctrl + A'ing various sections and starting a shuffle from a random song part way down the playlist, I can sometimes get it shuffling from all.
Some notes for more detail:
-- The problem doesn't seem to affect playlists, which select all correctly even if they have over 100 songs and seem to shuffle correctly.
-- The problem isn't present on my phone, which is a Moto G5s Plus running Android 8.1.0 and Spotify 184.108.40.2064 - there's no select all option to test, but when I shuffle the Liked Songs it seems to select from the whole list, not just the first 100.
-- If I change the order of the songs (for example, sort by Artist) it selects the physical first 100 showing on the list (so the first 100 by alphabetical artist name).
In summary it's basically just not behaving itself as it should!
Solved! Go to Solution.
As of today (7th May 2021) this issue seems to be resolved with the recent update to how liked songs and playlists display - using CTRL + A now selects ALL songs, finally!
The shuffle issue also seems to be resolved (shuffle still doesn't seem entirely random, but it's definitely not just picking from the most recent 100 additions any more) - I think this has been resolved for a bit longer, so I don't think the two issues were linked.
