    Spotify from Windows Store


    Hey, so my brother's trying to install the desktop app version of Spotify from the official site, but every time he installs it/launches it from the site, it seems to change to the Windows Store version of Spotify.



    He's tried uninstalling it multiple times, and we've looked for ways to remove Spotify from his Store library, but there's literally not an option anywhere.



    Any fixes? Thanks

  2. Spotify

    I have just discovered two Spotify entries in the StartUp list in Task Manager.
    However there is no trace of Spotify elsewhere in the system.
    I went through the registry and deleted every reference to Spotify that could find, although some refused to be deleted.
    That made no difference.
    The store shows that Spotify is installed. Which is strange.
    However I found an entry in the Apps list in Start Menu, clicked uninstall and that cleared the problem.
     
  3. Windows Store App (Spotify) "Can't open"

    Whenever i try to open spotify on the windows store, it just says "This app can't open. Check the store for more details about spotify." I check the store downloads page and spotify says "needs repairs".

    So far i've tried:

    - Repairing Spotify using the settings app

    - Resetting Spotify using the settings app

    - Uninstalling and reinstalling spotify with the settings app

    - Deleting the spotify directory in /AppData/Roaming

    - Doing all of these steps and then restarting

    - Installing spotify off the website (which doesnt work because now windows store decides that its version is better)

    I love using spotify and i desperately need a fix. Its getting really annoying. Any ideas?

  4. Spotify from Windows Store

    Unable to integrate Cortana with Spotify.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We can imagine how difficult it could be when app feature do not work the way they supposed to. However, could you please let us know from where you got the Spotify app?



    In the meantime, we would suggest you to follow steps mentioned below and check if it helps.



    1. Go to Settings > Time & Language.
    2. Click on Region & Language.
    3. Check if country and language is set to United States and
      English (United States).
    4. Then set up Cortana again.
    5. Log out from your Spotify account and log in again.
    6. Then try integrating Cortana with
      Spotify and check.

    We would also suggest you to run troubleshoot for Microsoft Store Apps if you have installed the app from Microsoft Store by referring to

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    You may also want to refer
    Fix problems with the Start menu or Cortana for details
