Spotify won't play after I click pause

Spotify won't play after I click pause



When I click pause I can't get Spotify to play the track I was listening to. I have to go back to the last track and then forward to the track I was listening to. Which means I have to listen to the song from the beginning.


Is anyone else having this problem?


Edit: trying to post this message is also full of problems, hopefully this will now go through.

Welcome to the Spotify Community.


Let's try a deeper reinstallation to get this fixed. Just follow these steps:


  • Log out of Spotify and then close the program.
  • Uninstall 
  • Browse to the cache and delete everything inside the folder. The default location should be:


  • Delete also the folder:

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\<random numbers-user>\


There is a folder for each profile that has been logged into Spotify on that computer account. 


  • Restart your PC.

Thanks for your reply Maria_B. I managed to resolve the issue by restarting my computer. That seemed to clear whatever was causing the problem. However if the problem does happen again I'll try what you suggested.


Thanks again for your reply.
