Spotify on windows size and location save on close

Status: Closed
I have my taskbar orientation set up at the top (as opposed to normally at the bottom). If you move and resize the Spotify player to your preference then close it and open it again it will reset to the default size and position. Issue does not exist when taskbar orientation is at the bottom. Please fix. This has been occuring for many months now. The "run as administrator" solution only works when your taskbar is at the bottom, not at the top like I have it.

Hey there.


Our tech folks have been looking into this backstage, and despite their best efforts haven't been able to replicate the issue. In this case, we're going to close up the thread for now.

However, we'd recommend checking you don't have any other programmes installed that could be interfering with things here. If the issue does still persist after checking for other programmes and reinstalling, we'd suggest starting a new thread so that we can pass this info on.

Let us know if there's any questions.

Hey @EH15!

Thanks for the info @EH15!


It may sound simple, but could you try a clean reinstall following these exact steps?


Let us know how it goes 🙂

Hey @EH15,


As we haven't heard anything for a little while, we're going to close this thread for now. If there's anything we can help you with, just let us know. Keep us posted on the reinstall 🙂


I did clean re-install with the given instructions but the problem persists. I also installed on a 2nd desktop to see if it was just this machine but the issue also exists on  my 2nd desktop. Please see for yourself. Set the Windows taskbar to 'Top' and resize/move the Spotify window around. Close Spotify, re-open Spotify and you'll see the orientation has changed.
