I can't see the window control, so I can't minimize, maximize, or close using the window control. The Unmaximize keyboard shortcuts doesn't work at all. So I'm writing this tutorial for Linux user who have the same issue. Follow the simple steps below :

Step 1 - First, close the Spotify app on your Linux.

Step 2 - Launch your Linux file manager : Pantheon, Nemo, Nautilus, Dolphin, Thunar etc.

Step 3 - Go to home directory, then press Ctrl+H to show the hidden directories.

Step 4 - Open spotify config folder .config -> spotify. You'll see the file named window_position.prefs. See the screenshot below :

Step 5 - Next, rename, remove, or move it. Or simply open Linux terminal then running the following command :

cd .config/spotify/
mv window_position.prefs window_position_BEK.prefs

Now open Spotify and viola, it back to normal window!.
