Search bar and new playlist not working

When I try and go into the search bar, it wont let me type anything into it, not at all. And when I try and make a new playlist and I try to click onto it, it wont let me do that either. Its becoming frustrating, help?


P.S I'm using Windows XP, and I have un-installed and re-installed many many times.

Re: Search bar and new playlist not working

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 


What version of the Spotify client are you using (Help > About)? 


Try going to the "Local Files" tab and then back to the playlist, does it work now?
