My Question or Issue

After alt tabbing out of a fullscreen application, clicking on spotify pushes it back behind all my other windows and if it is the only window on the monitor, it doesn't let me interact with anything.


However, music still plays and the timeline is still moving. I just cant click on anything, and my pause/play macros don't work either.


A fix I have found is to minimise and re-open spotify. This is extremely clunky, is there a fix for this?

Hey @sirlagsalot,


Welcome to the Spotify Community and thanks for posting your question here. 


Did you already try a 'clean' reinstall of the app to see whether that helps solving the issue? 
If you didn't, it'd be great to take a look at this Spotify Answer to find out how that works for your Windows 10.


Suggesting this since an app reinstall is highly likely to help in such scenarios and also since a clean reinstall is more effective than simply reinstalling the app.
Let us know how you get on. We'll be keeping an eye on your reply if there's anything else we can help with!
