Yeah, same problem here.

 

Could we please get a fix for this?

Anyone got any solution?

Some of us dislike the "Thumbnail Preview" when Alt-Tabing and prefer the classic small icons (see e.g. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/99205-set-alt-tab-use-classic-icons-thumbnails-windows.html)

 

Apparently, Spotify doesn't have an icon embedded in its executable (at least not in the correct place), so Windows will show a generic icon. This is also the case for many Windows native applications, like the calculator, and I don't know why.

 

Would Spotify developers happen to know why?

 

Thanks,

René

 

Update: I just found this, explaining how to do it - at least from Visual Basic: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4707708/generic-icon-displays-for-my-app-in-the-alt-tab-dialog

Same problem here. Windows 10 with classic alt+tab (peek disabled).
