Window management on Windows is not idiomatic


Window management on Windows is not idiomatic


Windows users have access to a number of idiomatic shortcuts for windows management: WindowsKey+UpArrow for Maximize, WKey+LeftArrow or +RightArrow for dock to screen edge, drag menubar to top of screen for maximize. Advanced windows users make a lot of use of these shortcuts for managing window placement.


Spotify for Windows completely ignores all of these idioms, and it makes using Spotify on Windows a lot less enjoyable and intuitive for Windows users. You folks should pay a little attention to the desktop idioms of the platforms you support, because when you fdon't you;re not really suppporting the platform.

Spotify has never followed the normal window behaviour on Windows.
