How to stop spotify from always appearing in the taskbar

Using Windows 8.1 (also probably works in 7 & XP)

1. Find spotify icon in the notifications area

windows-notification-area

2. Right click on the icon in the notifications area.. select option.

Because having spotify show up in the taskbar all the time is so unnecessary and I hate it.

In other news.. clicking the close "x" does not close spotify as it should. If you want to actually close spotify, you have to click the "exit" option.
