When you install Spotify on your laptop or desktop computer, the app opens by default. This means that the Spotify app runs in the background and launches when you connect it to your computer.
If Spotify (and other apps) are launched while downloading, the download time will increase significantly. Even if you don’t care about your computer’s startup time, the fact that Spotify starts up immediately can be annoying.
For me to help you out, I’ll tell you how to prevent Spotify from opening on startup in Windows by following these steps.
