My Question or Issue
The Spotify app won't launch at all - the window does not appear and no processes appear in task manager. I went through the "clean reinstall" process that is posted here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Can-t-run-or-un-reinstall/td-p/1567813
, but doing that didn't work. I tried the clean reinstall with Windows in Safe Mode, and I'm able to launch the Spotify app in Safe Mode, but as soon as I switch back to normal mode on Windows, the app doesn't launch.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have had this problem at least twice, where suddenly Spotify no longer opens, there's no task manager process, etc., using Windows 10. I have it configured to open automatically on Start, and this also was not happening.
Today, I fixed it using something I hadn't seen on here; maybe this is helpful to someone:
After selecting repair, a little green check mark appeared, and after that, running Spotify from the Start menu worked again.
