Spotify won't show on taskbar, but has an icon in system tray, Spotify and DisplayFusion problem

My problem is as stated in the title.
Spotify works fine for me, besides the fact that it won't show on the taskbar.
I can open Spotify through Alt+Tab, but I can't click it on the taskbar cause there is no icon.
It can also be opened from the system tray icon.
This is not a life breaking problem, but I do like to see which programs are opened by looking to the taskbar.

I've searched through the internet to find solutions, but without luck.

Picture of the problem

Please note that the system tray icon is not sohwn in that picture, but when opened (the system tray) it is there.

Try them out one at a time, the most recent first.

If you want to keep them from from updating, see this post of mine:

Whichever version you find the problem to be, I'd report it to the developers of both programs and let them hash it out.  Its worked for me in the past.

In the system tray icon, do you have "Hide Spotify from Taskbar when closed" selected?

Nope, it is unchecked

Ps. 2nd picture, i just pinned Spotify to the taskbar to act as a shortcut, but still doesn't stay "highligthed" like other active programs.

Strange, does a clean reinstallation of the client make any difference?

Just wondering, if you move the taskbar back to the bottom of the screen does it make any difference? 

 

Spotify is so tempermental sometimes it wouldn't surprise me haha!

Very weird, I've escalated this to the Spotify guys to see if they have any ideas too.

Just had a suggestion from another super user, do you have Spotify set to auto launch but minimised when Windows starts?
