A follow up to make life easier…

Put the two command lines I mentioned in shortcuts to quickly enable / disable Spotify…

imageCeate a new shortcut on your desktop (right click on desktop and select “New –> Shortcut”)

In the target dialog, enter the command: ‘C:\Windows\System32\netsh.exe advfirewall firewall set rule name=”spotify outbound” new enable=no’ and give it a name like Spotify OnLine.

Repeat the operation for enabling the firewall rule, ‘C:\Windows\System32\netsh.exe advfirewall firewall set rule name=”spotify outbound” new enable=yes’ and name it Spotify Offline (or whatever you’d like)

Now, right click the shortcut and select properties (or select end press Alt+Enter).

imageIn the dialog, select “Advanced…” and tick “Run as administrator”.

If you press “Start” and right-click the “All programs” and select “open” you can paste the shortcuts into your start menu for easier access.

Your shortcut will now do what you think it will Winking smile
