My Question or Issue

I have recently been trying to organize my music better. I listen to a very small range of artists and albums. I just noticed that my "liked" playlist has almost 600 songs on it, most of which i have never heard of or listened to. I believe this is because when I was trying to like a single song off of an album, it added that entire album to my liked playlist! Is there a way I can completely mass-wipe/delete my Liked playlist, or do i need to continue to unlike them one at a time like I have been?

Hi, 

 

I would suggest using the desktop app for this. Click the first song in the list, then scroll down to the bottom and shift-click the last song. This will select all songs between the two that you clicked. Right-click (or ctrl-click on Mac if you don't have right-click enabled) and select "remove from liked songs."

 

To make sure you don't lose songs you actually wanted to keep, I would recommend creating a new playlist and adding all the songs there (same process as above, just click "add to playlist" instead of remove," because when you remove them from your liked songs, there's not a way (that I'm aware of, anyway) to get them back without individually liking every song again. 

 

If you do come across a song you want to keep in the list, after clicking the first song you want to delete, shift-click the song above the one you want to keep, then ctrl-click (cmd-click on Mac) the song below the one you want to keep, and shift-click the last one you want to delete from there. This will keep the one that you want to keep unseelected so that it won't be deleted with tthe other selected songs. 

 

Hope this helps! Let me know if you run into any problems.

No thanks for the Spotify support that copy/pasted shitty procedures by mail to help me... but thanks to you!

I had a title impossibe to remove from liked titles and CTRL+DELETE was the solution!

PS: I'm on Windows 10, had already tried to reinstall Spotify etc...
