  1. Spotify downloaded automatically as app on Windows 10


    Hi, When I powered up my laptop this morning, I noticed the Spotify app popped up on my screen. Upon checking Program files I noticed it was download as an app from the MS Store. I never used the Spotify app on this laptop and don't have an account. I am signed in as a Local Account administrator but not signed into the MS store. Also, Spotify is rated "Teen" which means it shouldn't allow me to download the app without signing into the store.I checked my MS Store app settings and Purchase sign-in is deactivated and grayed out. Could this be part of a Microsoft update or somehow pushed through

    :)
     

  2. Cannot download Spotify

    Hi Bill,

    Since you cannot download an app from the Microsoft Store, it means that the cache in this store was already overloaded. Clearing the cache is needed periodically to clean all the temporary data stored on your computer.

    Here's what you can do:

    • Perform the WSReset command to clear the store app’s cache and reset it to a clean state
      (This also applies to built-in apps of Windows 10). To do so, follow the steps below:
    1. Press Windows + R to open the
    Run window.

    2. Type in WSReset.exe, then click
    OK.

    3. Wait for the command to finish.

    • Make sure that you disable all your anti-viruses and firewall temporarily. Have your
      Microsoft account log in to authorize your computer to accept apps from our store. It includes removing and reinstalling the app.
      Then, enable Windows Defender only later on.

    Once done with the troubleshooting steps above, you can start downloading
    Spotify again from the Microsoft Store here: Spotify Music.

    If you continue to have this issue even after performing the above steps, please reply to this thread. The system will notify me so I can get back to you and provide you more answers.

    Spotify

    Hi basilorjwan

    follow these steps

    1. Go to Spotify.com and click on the Get Spotify button.

    2. A window will appear asking you to create an account. Here you can create one with an email address or connect with your Facebook account.

    3. Once you have your account, the Spotify desktop application will be downloaded automatically.

    4. Open the Spotify installation file by double clicking on it. You will see a new window that says: Downloading Spotify.

    5. Once this process is finished, the application will open automatically and will welcome you to the service with a pop-up. In this, you can also configure (before you start listening) if you want the music you listen to be shared on Facebook automatically
    (this can also be changed later).

    6. Ready! You can now start using Spotify.
