Win 10 (latest)
My Question or Issue
Spotify shows the taskbar icon on the wrong screen on a multi-monitor setup.
So I have 3 screens. One is notebook's, second and third are external (thru DP). Second screen is set as main in Win 10's settings. All screens have a task bar, but only the main one has pinned apps and tray area.
When I open Spotify, it shows up in a middle screen's task bar, no matter which screen is the app acually displayed on.
Normal behaviour (all other apps do this) is to show up on the proper monitor's task bar. I've tried this with many other apps (InDesign, Firefox, MS Teams, CPUID HWMonitor...), including WPA-based (Win settings) and Electron-based (Figma). Forgot which one's Spotify running on.
Here's a diagram

Screenshot attached. It may look confusing; because
screen 1 is 4K landscape,
screen 2 is FHD landscape and
screen 3 is FHD portrait;
but you can see spotify running on the first screen and its app button on the second.
Thanks for any suggestions. This is a minor issue but it's irritating.
