My Question or Issue

I'm using a multi-monitor environment with Spotify on my secondary screen. Spotify remembers the position it was opened the last time. Now, when I close the Spotify app and start it again, the taskbar icon will show up on my main screen but the Spotify app will show up on the secondary screen (see screenshot). I configured my taskbar to only show the apps on the screen in the taskbar (Taskbar with open window). 

The taskbar icon, in this case, should only be shown up on my secondary screen. The taskbar icon will switch the bars when I move the app to the main screen and then move it back to the secondary screen.

Same issue. It's not a Windows issue; I have it on Windows 1803, too!

I just came back looking for that thread...was going to reply with a "It's been nearly a year since we posted, why isn't it fixed" but then found it locked...

 

*le sigh*  I know others reported fixing it by disabling hardware acceleration, but that doesn't even seem to work anymore.

Yup, same....so here we are in this new thread. I need to set a timer each week to reply here to make sure it doesn't get closed.

 

Messaged Spotify again and here's the lame response:

Still happening, Spotify. It's been 329 days (10 months and 25 days) since "escalation to the executive team".

 

Fix the Spotify icon to its window in multi-monitor setups.

 

  • Windows 10 Pro x64 1803
  • Spotify 1.1.3.259.g8172f63a (Windows Store version)

Still happening, Spotify. It's been 300 days (9 months and 24 days) since "escalation to the executive team".

 

The fix: attach the Spotify icon to its window in multi-monitor setups.
