My Question or Issue

In the Desktop app for Spotify, when I slide the volume adjuster with my mouse, the slider will slightly lag behind my cursor when adjusting, which isn't a huge issue, just annoying. I've seen people asking for solutions but never found one, and wondering if you actually can fix it.

Hey there @Cucukamba_Mcgee


Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 

Just to confirm, have you tried a clean reinstall of the Spotify app on your device? We recommend this step as it'll remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. It'll also get you the latest version of Spotify. These changes tend to solve issues like the one you're experiencing. Give your device a quick restart as well before you open the newly installed app. 


It's also a good idea to log in to your Spotify account on another device just to check if you observe the same. If it doesn't occur on a different device, we'd suggest making sure that your original device is up to speed with any software updates available.


Hope this helps. Keep us posted.
