How do you disable the automatic login and start up of Spotify when you start your computer?

How do you disable the automatic login and start up of Spotify when you start your computer? I am not sure which version I have but there is no 'Edit' on my spotify, only a settings icons (gears) and nothing about preferences. It only shows 'Account' "Session" and "Share on Facebook"....

Hey! :)

 

It sounds like you have somehow gotten your hands on the desktop/web preview client rather than the full desktop client. 

Try downloading and installing the full desktop client from: 

This link for Windows

This link for Mac

 

And then the options will be in the expected place ;)
