My Question or Issue

I have Spotify pinned to the Start menu. But I find it hard to locate the icon because it's always changing graphics to show various playlists, artists, etc., see attached. Is there a way I can change this to just show a static Spotify logo like the one that shows in the taskbar?

 

Edit: added hasty mockup of what I'd prefer

Hey @rtbick,

 

Great question! Yes, there's a simple way to change Spotify's start menu behavior so it only shows the icon instead of rotating artwork. If you'll just right click on Spotify's tile in your start menu, then select the "More" option, and finally click "Turn Live Tile off," you'll only see the icon. I've attached a couple screenshots if you need them!
