Hey @rook13, welcome to the Community!


Your issue sounds a lot like this Ongoing Issue, only that your client just terminates itself instead of freezing.

Either way it would be a good idea to check out that and also share a screen recording of what's happening when you try to search. 🙂


Does your Spotify app close itself when you attempt to use the filter feature to find a track in a playlist, as well?


Someone in the Issue thread presented the following method that might be helpful for you too:

Spotify searches from your local files too even when they're disabled. To fully disable them to stop the search from doing this you need to
1. go to your Preferences and scroll to Local Files.
2. Enable the Local Files
3. Disable all sources (Music, Downloads, everything)
4. Now disable Local Files.


Let me know how you get on!
