Spotify version. Help > About. Clicking on the version number copies.
A new version of Spotify was released in the last few days that [according to Peter] corrects various behavioral quirks and changes them to Windows standard behavior. And what Peter is suggesting is whether the new version corrected your problem or not.
Remember, anyone helping you here is doing so from a 3rd party perspective.
There has been a new version released the last few days. The reason I suggest Disply Fusion is to eliminate the most obvious first before going on a wild goose chase. Trust me, I've been there, spending hours hunting down a solution, when it was actually the most obvious one that was overlooked.
If Display Fusion is indeed the problem, then it gives the developers something to work with. ASAIC, its the developers JOB to assure that their software plays nice with others.
i did say earlier that the problem is related to DisplayFusion, though at the start of using the program(DisplayFusion) it worked fine and it(Spotify) showed on the taskbar.
Seems odd though, that from day to day Spotify started acting up.
Check it out again. I think you've already stated you've updated to 0.9.6. If so, and if unloading Display Fustion solves the problem, then we've got a solid case of a bug to report to the devs.
@Rollo_ is on the ball here, it sounds much more likely this is a bug with DisplayFusion rather than Spotify itself although notably it is strange it only effects Spotify. Did this start happening on v0.9.4 do you think? There was a Spotify framework change (CEF 1 --> 3) between v0.9.1 --> v0.9.4.
