Spotify's taskbar icon on the wrong monitor every single time (dual monitors)

We had a five page thread; Spotify closed it because "nobody responded in a long time". That's because, Spotify, ya never fixed it.

 

How to reproduce (you need two monitors):

 

1. Open Spotify and close it on the second monitor.

2. Open Spotify again. The icon will be on the primary monitor, but the window will be on the secondary monitor.

Windows 10 Pro x64, version 1803 (April 2018 update).

Spotify version 1.0.99.250.g936eab8d (Windows Store version).

 

See this 45 second video for the full walkthrough (see a normal application vs Spotify). Put the icon on the correct taskbar, Spotify.

Taskbar icon on wrong monitor

Hey,

 

Ever since the design update a few days ago (titlebar removal) Spotify's icon appears on the main monitor's taskbar despite the window opening on my second monitor.

This was not the case before the titlebar removing update.

 

If I drag the window to main monitor and then back, the icon carries over properly.

 

Using Spotify Desktop (1.0.75.483.g7ff4a0dc) on Windows 10 (1709).

Same thing here...just have to move it to the main monitor and back and the icon fixes itself, but still annoying.

 

Windows 10 1709 and Spotify 1.0.75.483.g7ff4a0dc

Working across five monitors, and all programs are able to properly display in the task bar on the monitor it belongs to except for Spotify.

I actually found a fix. I disabled hardware acceleration and the problem no longer occurs. Hopefully it works for you guys!

Disabling hardware acceleration didn't fix it for me.  It appears fixed after disabling and click the restart link but after a full exit of Spotify after that and reopen the problem appears again.
