Find the app in question (spotify), Uninstall. Though there might be a few files left behind; sometimes when I use settings to uninstall stuff, it uninstalls most of it.

Hi, i know how to uninstall software but this time spotify is not in the config panel apps uninstalling tool.

I dont even remember installing the app spotify.

I want to remove it.

I started a search on the computer, all disk drives, all it finds is .png

In the task manager under the start tab, when i right click on it, i can't even reveal the file emplacement...

Microsoft treats traditional applications a bit differently from so called "apps" that are auto loaded from the Microsoft store.

Additionally, these can be removed by right clicking then in the start menu and clicking uninstall.

Even if you did that to a traditional app, it would bring you to programs and features, which would then allow traditional uninstall.

I'm not sure, maybe it doesn't recognize it as an app. Either way try to uninstall through settings and have a look through your files to check that it has done what you want. That's all I can say since i'm not too much of a expert.

 

Edit: there's your expert, @Den-Fi

Just for...science...I installed Spotify through the Microsoft Store (I usually download + install directly from the Spotify webpage).

Sure enough, the Spotify 'App' doesn't show up in Control Panel, but *IS* under Apps and Features.
