I can send you a link to download the installation file but I don't know how
useful you'll find it. The interface is inaccessible and it requires object
navigation to use it. Trying to search using the application is so
cumbersome it isn't worth doing. You can search using Google, or whatever
search engine you want, then follow a link. YIf you don't have scripts
disabled, the web player will start to play the file. You can get the
address from the browser's address bar and paste it into the old desktop
application. Do you want to do all this? You will get better sound from
the old app but you may not want it after what I've said. There is more to
explain if you want to use it.

I don't like the newer versions of the desktop program so I've used an

Raise volume, control up arrow.
Lower volume, control down arrow. Don't use these short cuts when using
Web Player. they caused a lot of problems when I tried using the volume
settings quite some time ago and I wouldn't take a chance on them. They
should work properly in the installed program.
Toggle between play and pause using the space bar.
There are settings to move to the next and previous track. There are
settings to jump ahead or back by a certain number of seconds. I'd have
play something on Spotify and try what I think are the settings to
definitely tell you the correct ones. Try control left and right arrow
shift left and right arrow. If they don't work, try combinations like
control shift left and right arrow.

also, you may need to be in forms mode to use the commands I've been
describing. You may be in browse mode in the newer Spotify interface.
desktop application uses a web like interface.

Also, you may have to be somewhere other than at the top of the screen.
may need to move down the screen, then turn off browse mode, then try

Anyone know if you can use any shortcuts in Spotify to do things like
pause music and control the volume? Right now I have to go into the
menus to do all of that, but otherwise the program is accessible.
