Windows 10/ Spotify window spawned outside of working desktop area with no way to move.

Status: Not An Issue

Spotify gets spawned outside working windows desktop area, and due to 'special' design, I can not move it to a region, where I can access the menus.

Hey @mbaris! Thanks for your report!

 

That's not cool! Could you try to maximise the Spotify window by pressing these keys at the same time: Win+↑ and then dragging the window somewhere else? Let me know how it goes. 🙂

 

Thanks, have an awesome day!

I vaguely remeber that didn't work. Not sure though.

 

My solution is to turn the display on and off. Since it is connected through DP, when I turn back on, all the windows are redrawn, and the spotify window is put into a location where title bar is in an area I access.

 

Then, a couple of days later, if I forget spotify close to the windows task bar (which I keep at top), the next time I open it, it will go under the task bar, off the screen.

 

It would be great if the spotify window is draggable when I click where the play/stop etc control buttons are. That would solve the problem when I connect my laptop with VGA. Then I have to switch desktop layouts etc. That is more annoying.

We understand @mbaris.

 

Just to make sure, is there any way that you can change the screen settings on your computer? That way, the taskbar would not be in the way of the top part of the app and you can drag the window. 

 

Keep us posted.

Since the taskbar being on top of my desktop is the way I like my computer to be, I would rather stop using spotify on my desktop than doing that.

Got it @mbaris.

 

Does this happen only with the Spotify app or with any other program you run on your computer?

I think this is a windows 10 gui gimmick with 'special design' windows, sometimes it happens with Steam as well. Since I can drag the steam window not only through the topmost bar, this causes me no issues. 

So far I have seen it only with programs that have 'special' window designs, i.e., programs that use standart windows decorations such as Discovery Studio never have this problem. Also I've never seen this happening in Photoshop or Lightroom. All these three programs, I use heavily, much more than spotify.

 

I am okay with using spotify through my mobile device, so I can quit using the desktop, this is not a big problem.
