    spotify wont work in windows


    Spotify works in Roku/TV but not windows 10. It is a simple fix/tweak. Spotify works from 10 seconds to a minute and a half and then it backs fully out and quits in windows 10. Only on this computer. So I know it has to be setting in Windows 10. Settings in Spotify and Windows 10 have not been changed. I still get Groove to work in Windows 10 with no problem. 1. What settings in Windows 10 for Spotify do I need to look at and change?I already uninstalled/reinstalled on this computer and Roku. Roku just because.

    :)

  2. Cortana - Spotify problem

    So when I tell Cortana to play a song on spotify she does successfully finds the songs but doesn't actually play it. She just brings up spotify without changing the song.

    I found this fix:

    • 1. Unlink Cortana (in her settings)
    • 2. Revoke Cortana app access (via accounts.spotify.com), and while you're logged on...
    • 3. Set up an App Password especially if you're using facebook to log in (this may not be neccessary, but I did so just to circumvent all potnetial issues).
    • 4. Uninstall Spotify

      5. Install Spotify from the Windows Store (I believe the actual cause of the issue is that those of us with the problem probably installed from the Spotify Installer download, rather than
      the Windows Store).
    • 6. Launch and log in to the Spotify app with the app password you created in step three.

      7. Link Cortana using the app password you created in step three.
    • 8. Restart your computer (my Cortana didn't think Spotify was installed until I did so).

      9. Enjoy hands-free music browsing!

    The problem with this tho is that it only works untill i shut down/restart the PC. After that I need to redo this all again in order for it to work and its really frustrating to do this everytime I open my computer.

  4. spotify wont work in windows

    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.
