Spotify won't start and uninstall


Spotify won't start and uninstall








Operating System

Windows 10


My Question or Issue

 I haven't done anything to my computer, but for some reasond Spotify won't start. Every time I try to launch it it just pops for a second (without anything on it, just gray space) and then turns off. I tried to look at the task manager, but there was no Spotify. I thought that I could try reinstalling it, but when I click "delete" (In the programs and components menu) and it just does nothing. It says "deleting" for a moment and then goes back. I tried restarting my PC, but it won't help either.
I checked my antivirus, and problem isn't there.
I just don't know what to do.

Hey, thanks for reaching out.

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstallation of the app. Just follow the steps here. If this doesn't work please try it in Safe Mode and see how it goes 🙂

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest!
