Why does the script jump back to MS at the end instead of setting Spotify as active window?

I'm guessing you're running it from the editor. That's to help debug. Exit the editor and see if it still does that.

It works but it sets Spotify as active even if I click yes when the script asks me if I wanna or not wanna continue what I did before the script started!

Your problem there is this line :

Code: Select all

If>%strResponse% = "Yes"
Which should be :

Code: Select all

If>%strResponse%=YES

Code: Select all

Ask>Vill du fortsätta med det du gjorde innan Spotify?,strResponse
If>%strResponse%=YES
  MDL>yes
Else
  MDL>no
Endif
...and always remember the Endif

MessageModal. To demonstrate the correct usage of If/Else/Endif. I suggest trying the code I provided so you can see exactly how it works.
