...and yet when I try to, a dialogue box tells me I can't delete it because it's already open.

Any ideas what I can do?


Make sure Spotify isn't in your login items (System Preferences → Users & Groups) so it won't automatically start. Log out, making sure to uncheck ‘Reopen windows when logging back in’, then log back in. Try to delete the app now.

  • Many thanks for that grgarside. It worked. You're a genius (that, or I'm a fool!). Does your screen name have anything to do with the wonderful Scritti Politti, by the way? – McCord Mark May 17 '17 at 13:15
