My Question or Issue

Below a certain Y pixel position on my monitor, the 4 controls in the bottom right of the app are no longer active and cannot be used.


If the window and the controls are above a certain Y value on my monitor, then they work fine and I can access the queue, change the volume etc.

As soon as I move the window and move those controls below a certain level they stop working. They no longer highlight when hovered over and they cannot be clicked. The other controls on the bottom bar continue to work fine. I can click album art or song titles, I can use the playback controls etc. It's just the 4 small controls on the bottom right that stop working.


If it helps I have a 2 monitor setup, with the right monitor in portrait mode.

When the Spotify app is on monitor 1, no problems.

When the app is on monitor 2 I get the issue


Both monitors are in 1920x1080 resolution (2 is 1080x1920 of course)

Position is taken from the top left of monitor 1 (0,0).

Monitor 2 top left pos is (1920,-418).

The issue occurs at (x,1265). At this line the controls stop working.

Anywhere above, no problem. Anywhere below, all the problem.


Please see the attached image showing the 2 states.

The top snippet shows the queue button highlighted and clickable.

The bottom snippet shows the queue button grey and unclickable.


I am using the latest version AFAIK as I tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
