In Logic, I press enter twice and then space and I can play from the beginning of a track and resets my playhead. How can I do this in Ableton Live 9 ? It always starts me at where my playhead is and it's annoying.

In Live, the spacebar plays from the start marker position. However, fn + left arrow (OSX) or Home (Win) should move the playhead to the beginning.

If you're using a MIDI controller for transport control, you can double-tap the "Stop" button which will return the marker to the beginning as well.
