[Desktop] Doesn't show accurate number of songs saved anymore

Hey. I use Spotify as my main music library and I have a little OCD regarding checking up on the precise number of saved songs in my "Liked songs" section, just to check up that I didn't delete any songs by mistake.
I used to be able to just Command+A and then drag the mouse up to show how many songs I have saved, but after I updated both my spotify and Mac OS a couple of days ago, this doesn't work anymore. The number of saved songs now only show 100, and I know I have close to 7000 songs saved, so this feature doesn't work for me anymore. Really hope there is a fix for this as I actually use it a lot.


Hey again folks,


Thanks again for all your reports! 


We've let our developers know about this and they're investigating.


As a heads up while we don't have an exact timeline for a fix, we'd recommend keeping your Spotify app up to date to guarantee you’re rocking all the latest features and fixes. There's some helpful info on doing that here.

Have a lovely day 🙂

Hey there folks,


Thanks for reporting this here in the Community!


If you're experiencing this, make sure to add your +VOTE, if you haven't already.


Further, it'd be helpful if you could let us know the following details so we can get this reported to the right teams:

  • Your device and its OS (operating system) version 
  • The exact version of the Spotify app

Keep in mind that if you scroll down in your desktop device before clicking Ctrl+A or Cmd+A, you should be able to select more songs.


We'll keep you updated here so make sure you've subscribed to this thread 🙂 Cheers!


My OS is: macOS Mojave version 10.14.6 (18G103)
My spotify version is:

Yeah when I scroll down the number of songs shown when i cmd+a increases, but it's still not accurate and I'd have to slowly scroll through my entire music library every time I'd want an accurate number of songs shown. I tried scrolling it all the way down a couple of days ago, but then the correct amount of saved songs just resets to 100 when I checked 5-10 mins later.

Hi, I'm having the same problem.


Device: Dell XPS 13 9370

Operating system: Windows 10 Home, version 1903

Spotify Version:



Normally when I click ctrl + a, it selects all the songs in my 'liked songs' library (about 900 songs), but as of very recently this is no longer working. If I click ctrl + a at the top of 'liked songs' then it only selects 100 songs, and if I click ctrl + a somewhere in the middle, it can select around 200-300 but that's it. I've also tried left clicking the top song and then shift + left clicking the bottom song but that doesn't work either.

The ctrl + a function works completely fine for me when selecting all the songs from an actual playlist (I tested it on a 1300 song playlist).




After updating to mac OS Catalina and updating Spotify again, the problem is still exactly the same.
Nice to see nothing has been done and the thread is still just marked as "need more info" 😃



I use Spotify via the App on my MacBook.

For about 2 weeks I can't update a playlist in which I put all my saved songs, beacuse the Commad+A command doesn't work. Neither does selecting the first song and then selecting the last song while holding Shift.

It just randomly selects blocks of songs but never all of them, no matter what I do.

Very much appreciate any help!

Kind regards,

Hey @Katerina,


I tried that too already and it leaves big chunks of songs unselected, and what's worse the right click menu won't show up at all.

  • Spotify

Hey there folks,


Thanks for keeping us in the loop!


@Loxer, thanks for adding this info!


@zanderfry28  it seems like you're on an older version of the app. As there's a newer version of the app available, it'd be very helpful if you could let us know if the issue persists for you after updating


@Mortvillain, could you also confirm the version of the app you're currently on? Thanks!



If you haven't, it'd be also helpful if you could try a clean reinstallation of the desktop app following the steps in this Spotify Answer.


Keep us posted 🙂
