Several minutes to load content when opening the program.

Casual Listener

Since last couple of weeks or so when i start spotify it stays showing the loading icon for about 5 minutes before showing the content.

I have tried disabeling the local files paths but problem persist. 

I don't remember if this started with an actualization but may be the case.

Please help.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Spotify Community.

 

Let's try a deeper reinstallation to get this fixed. Just follow these steps:

 

  • Log out of Spotify and then close the program.
  • Uninstall 
  • Browse to the cache and delete everything inside the folder. The default location should be:

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Storage 

 
  • Delete also the folder:

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\<random numbers-user>\

 

There is a folder for each profile that has been logged into Spotify on that computer account. 

 

  • Restart your PC.
Let us know how it goes.
