How to Locate Spotify Songs on Local Computer

"Where are my downloaded Spotify songs on my PC?? I downloaded a bunch of songs from Spotify when I had premium but now I can't find any of them on my PC. I'm not sure what folder to look for. They're not in my PC music files so where the heck are they?"

In fact, it’s not difficult to locate where the downloaded Spotify songs are stored on local drive, but they may be useless for you even if you find them at last. To check the location, you can simply open Spotify, go to Settings > Show Advanced Settings > Offline Songs Storage. The default storage location should be set to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Spotify\Storage. You can change it to another location if you’d like to.

Now you’ve found the files, but you cannot open any of them – or even identify the songs that the files hold. They are all listed as “FILE files”. And if you cancel your premium subscription, you may find nothing in the end. Why is that? Move on to learn more about the service and tips.

Spotify uses an encrypted file extention (Ogg Vorbis) as its streaming format- not an MP3 file. Thus, you are limited to download and play the songs offline within Spotify and you cannot play them on other platforms. And if you discontinue the premium service, your account would be reverted to a Free ad-based service, and the songs you’ve downloaded from Spotify would be removed and you won’t be able to listen to them offline either.
