If you try to access to Spotify player from your Microsoft Surface without enabling Flash, you will get a message asking your to install Adobe Flash Player. Since Flash comes pre-installed on Surface tablets, all we have to do is enable it for this particular domain (that is, spotify.com). Here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: From your Surface home screen press Win+R, type regedit and confirm it to open Registry Editor. If you got prompted by UAC click Yes.

Step 5: When new string is created, open it in edit mode, inside value field type spotify.com and click OK.
