  2. Icons interfering with my email titles (garbage can, read & recycle). I need to hover over title and read. Interfering with my business.

    Horrible, icons slowing my business down. Why are these here?? If you need to update the product don't do things that are slowing people down. This is idiotic.

  4. AOL desktop gold update option

    AOL desktop gold updates should have an option for either automatic or manual. Many software vendors do this.

  5. When you continue demonizing Trump, you are also demonizing the other half of all voters of the USA-- your customers, stupid!!

    Would you AOL editors, mind slanting your EVERY article a little more to the RIGHT, just to give your customers more comprehensive knowledge?

  6. The COMPOSE button starts an email. I go to the "To" field and type a name (for example Paul) that's in my contact list. But it isn't found

    I click COMPOSE, then move the mouse to the "To" field and type a name (for example Chuck) that's in my address book. But the system doesn't find it because that name is not in the actual email address (continuing the example the contact list says "Chuck Kollars" ckollars9@yahoo.com). How can I get the address search to look at actual names too, not just the email addresses?

  10. Search boxes

    I found a tiny little red box upper right corner that says 'Search".. I used that and what I search for works.. Why is this big search box on the opening page? No need for it as it won't work.

  11. saving saved messages on AOL on a usb stick from relatives passed away

    I have many messages where family has sent me jokes and messages of love and caring on my saved mail area. I'd like to save them on USB sticks in case AOL stops or won't save messages for us any more. this way my loved ones care and affection and memories won't be gone forever. Can you folks add that link to save them on A USB or disk option?

  13. ADG latency

    whenever you scroll through the emails it highlights everything the mouse passes through which is annoying. Please provide a fix to remove this feature which just showed up with the latest version 11.0.3316. How come we lost the feature whenever you add a new email address it automatically gets added to the address book, if you could please bring this back.

  15. Make it possible for users to print out a website address list of My Favorites

    Please provide a way for an AOL user to print out the website addresses of all their Favorites. If I could have printed my Favorites I would have an easy reference now that installing AOL on a new computer did not populate my Favorites and to make it worse, I can't put any favorites in My Favorites on the "new" AOL installation.

  19. No comment section on controversial articles

    Articles that AOL seems to deem the most controversial, like things about Trump now that he is no longer POTUS, do not have a comments section. What is AOL afraid of?

  20. Tired of seeing Trump

    In case you haven't noticed, Trump LOST the election. He is NO LONGER President of the United States. The Olympics are on, Covid-19 infections are rising significantly in many States. Can't you find REAL news articles to put on the Welcome pages? I am tired of seeing his face every time I open AOL.
