WIndows 10 Desktop
My Question or Issue
Spotify app eats the CPU on a speedy new desktop machine. How do I reduce this?
Spotify works fine on my little Android phone. Why is the Windows version such a CPU hog? I turned off hardware acceleration and that helped a little. Spotify is now using 60% of CPU rather than 80%.

The network guys took a look at my computer and made some changes to how it used the video cards. I have a Radeon 550 in addition to the integrated video card. Not sure why, but that fixed the CPU usage problem. It's now at 15%-20% most of the time - about what you'd expect.
