[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

Plan

Premium

Country

DE

Device

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!)

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.

 

We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone! Just make sure your app is updated to the latest version.

 

If you're still having trouble, make sure to post a new thread in the relevant help board here.

 

Thanks!

GREAT NEWS

 

This bug is FINALLY fixed on 1.1.44.538.g8057de92. I've got a confirmation email as well from the Executive Team.

 

It has been 890 DAYS, friends, brothers, sisters, comrades. Holy mackerel, we would hit 1000 days come 2021.

 

I can confirm on BOTH the Microsoft Store and the traditional x86 exe, the newest version is present on both and it's rolled out to at least my system here.

That's great news! Thanks for the update. I won't be able to test it for myself until later this week but this is great to hear.

Updated mine in the Microsoft Store and so far it's working! Restarted the app and Windows 10 a few times an so far it opens where it was and is on the correct taskbar. Will give it the rest of the week to see if it happens again.
