[Desktop] Spotify's taskbar icon on the wrong monitor every single time (dual monitors)

Follow-up thread for https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Spotify-s-taskbar-icon-on-the-wrong-monitor-every-s... because it's an annoying issue and still unfixed






Windows Desktop x64 with MULTI MONITOR setup

Operating System

Windows 10 (1909) x64


My Question or Issue

1. Open Spotify and close it on the second monitor.

2. Open Spotify again. The icon will be on the primary monitor, but the window will be on the secondary monitor.


See the linked thread: 



I created this follow-up thread because replies to the first were blocked and since the first bugreport the problem is still unfixed (it's over one year now!)

Glad to share. It's something. Not what we deserve, but it's something!


To confirm, the latest build still has this issue (tested on Windows 10 Pro x64 1909 18363.900).

Meanwhile at Spotify





When Amazon Music came up with the three month free subscription of Amazon Music HD I decided to change to that. Yes, the Amazon Music application is a pain, by far, but does not have this kind of bug. Maybe I will come back to Spotify sometime, but actually I can't say that I'm missing anything on Amazon Music.


So I even can't say if this bug still exists with the latest version because I did not open the spotify application for a while. I will keep an eye on this thread so maybe I will give Spotify another try when this and othe bugs and features (disabling behind the Lyrics on mobile) I created or voted for are fixed/implemented.


The bug absolutely exists to this day, Spotify Build, Windows Build 10.0.18363. It has been at least 2 years and 4 months with no fix... The last comment, which was one month ago, is that the "right teams are still looking into this".


The right question to as here is when does this bug report get turned into "doing" as in implementing the code changes There is no way someone has spent a month working on this bug. It would have been fixed by now. This is still a super low priority bug to Spotify. They need to commit to a date when this will be addressed.


I'm not sure where my last post went.


Still broken in, today's latest update.


Spotify needs to commit to a date. This bug is ludicrously behind...


Still remains an issue. Seemingly unrelated to Windows itself as this is the only application displaying such behaviour.
