  1. Why has Windows 10 Installed Spotify on my computer?


    I'm not sure how to make a complaint but there is no way Microsoft should be installing adverts onto my computer. Whenever I startup my computer I now get a screen popup asking me to create an account on Spotify. I don't intend to ever use Spotify, even less so now. I have a fully licensed paid version of Windows and I don't appreciate this **** being installed on my computer.I'd like an answer from Microsoft on this.

    :)

    Hi Jackie,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. I will surely help you.

    If you face any issue while using Spotify on Windows 10, you may try to install Spotify in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    To install Spotify in compatibility mode follow these steps:

    a. Right-click on the setup file of the program and select “Properties”.

    b. Select “Compatibility” Tab.

    c. Place a check mark next to “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and
    select latest Windows version from the drop down list.

    d Let Spotify install and then check the functionality.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    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.
