    Thanks for the great tutorial. I followed the steps and I’m trying to set Spotify as the default for Windows 10, but it won’t let me choose Spotify, nor does it ever show up on that list. Is there a way to add Spotify to the list?

      I’m having the same problem. My keyboard has a music button that opens the Window’s default music app and it’s leading me to Groove. I only have Groove, Windows Media Player, and iTunes to choose from the drop-down menu even when I’ve already installed Spotify. Have you found any workaround to this?

        Go to your music library, right-click on any mp3 file and select Open With, and find Spotify. The file then opens in Spotify. After this move all the MP3 files should open with Spotify as default.

        I hope that helps!
