[Solved] Why does spotify's windows search icon look bugged/glitched?

Hello 👋,

 

Updated Spotify (windows store edition) recently and when I searched for it from the windows start menu, it looked something like this (see attachment).

 

Does anybody know why?

Any info is appreciated.

 

Device

HP Laptop

 

OS Version

Windows 10 20H2

Hey @mesub,

 

That's strange.

 

Could you try with the non Windows Store version from here?

 

Keep me posted.

Hey @mesub, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

It could be a problem with the thumbnail cache of Windows.

To reset it, open Disk Cleanup from search on your Start Menu or Taskbar then select Thumbnail cache and click Ok.

 

Otherwise you might need to do a reinstall of the app, to do so follow this guide.

 

Hope it helps 🙂

Thanks, @Loxer!

 

Sadly, that didn't seem to work, I've tried disk cleanup and also doing a clean reinstall of the app, and I still end up with the same result.

Hi @Loxer,

 

That seemed to work (the link you gave was android but I found the windows version). 

 

Thank you very much!

 

Glad it worked out for you @mesub!

 

Sorry for the link, it seemed like the one I was looking for when I googled it (it was in a new type of result box thing where I copied it from) but should have known it would have been android, my bad on that.

I will edit it with the right link, thank you 😄
