Minimize Spotify in system tray Windows 7 x64

Well... I'm dissapointed now. Why in the world you removed the option to minimize Spotify in system tray? Now it's just wasting space in my taskbar. Bring this option back ASAP!

Re: Minimize Spotify in system tray Windows 7 x64

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

I am on the most recent client version (v0.8.8) on Windows 7 x64 and I still have this option.

You just need to activate it by right clicking on the Spotify icon in the system tray and selecting the correct option for you.

darn, seems that my Spotify isn't updating automatically. But that fixed the problem. Though should the option be in the settings box in the program window.

 

EDIT: Kudos and many thanks to you, Sir.

Perfect answer- this needs to come up first on google.

This post did show up first in my search results, even though I mistakenly typed "taskbar" instead of "system tray." It works for me, much appreciated! I too wish there was an option in the settings page to make the minimize button do this.

Same here, Spotify auto updated, and suddenly it won't minimize to tray. I can't seem to find any option for it? (I tried right clicking it in my taskbar, but no luck. I can hover on it but then only prev, pause/play, next icons come up.

 

Also, suddenly I can't right click and press play on my folders or playlists. This seems like a huge step back

Yeah i've accidently closed Spotify down a few times since the update. It no longer minimizes to tray. Please re-add this functionality.

PLZ re-add this feature to the Spotify option dialog. THX.

Other UI changes are also weak (i.e. moved volume control from left to right) and other more. but nice is the history. thx.
