Hey @novaktamas

 

I suggest turning off hardware acceleration for Spotify.

Go to Spotify, click on menu dots, navigate to View and click on Hardware Acceleration. It will restart the client.

 

Looks like some interesting issue with graphics. If the issue persists, let me know. :)

Hi, Sebasty,

it doesn't work (see attached vid). With h/w acceleration off, the "..." menu and the Min-max-close block is still displayed at wrong position. It is a very minor issue so I don't care if it will never be fixed, but it *is* an interesting bug.

The hardware accel was only a temporary fix then? Odd.

 

I would recommend reinstalling Spotify, maybe it's the client needing a refresh. Follow this article, but before you install Spotify, restart your PC. It's necessary to end all Spotify-related threads to give a fresh start.
You can also check (and delete) Spotify folders in %appdata%, both Local and Roaming.

 

If the issue is still present, then the graphics driver may need a reinstall, or there is a setting that causes this.

 

Let me know how it goes :)
