Delete Tracks from the Library from Spotify - dummies

Delete Tracks from the Library from Spotify

By Kim Gilmour

After you send a track to from Spotify, that track gets added to your Library — essentially a database of tracks you’ve listened to. It’s no big deal if you forgot to uncheck the scrobble box when you played “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “The Wheels on the Bus” for your kid because you can go into and delete unwanted tracks from your Library.

That way, won’t keep telling you to listen to The Muppets albums all the time.

Follow these steps to remove a track from your Library:

  1. Log into, and then go to your Profile page by clicking your username at the top-right of the screen.

    Alternatively, type directly in your browser address bar.

  2. In the Recently Listened Tracks section, hover your mouse pointer over the track that you want to delete.

    A gray box with a cog icon on it appears next to the track.

  3. Click this cog to display a drop-down list of editing choices.

  4. Click Remove from Your Library to get rid of the track.

  5. (Optional) If you want, repeat Steps 2 through 4 in the Top Artists and Top Tracks section, farther down the page.

Don’t worry, deleting the track from only deletes it from the listening history for your account, not your computer.
