  1. With the last 4 or 5 beta fixes, nothing was fixed here

    With the last 4 or 5 beta fixes, nothing of importance was fixed here. I can't account for anything prior to that as I have only started following this forum in the last 4 or 5 weeks. So the question is, what are these unimportant fixes?? I'm still waiting for, among other things:

    Being able to sign in without trying many times.
    Being able to use shortcut keys.
    New carousel items & smilies.
    Not freezing constantly.
    Making the news drop the horrendous animal abuse stories.
    Making visited links change color in AOL searches.
    Making AOL Gold do everything faster. It…

  6. Provide a means of exporting e-mails from your Desktop App.

    I am an attorney. My client wishes to provide me with thousands of e-mails relevant to his case. In order to efficiently search through those e-mails, I requested that he export them and provide them to me in electronic format. He did so.
    However, I now understand that in order to process the e-mails, I need to download and install AOL Desktop Gold. The problem is, I don't have an account and therefore cannot download Gold.
    I chatted with an AOL tech who informed me that there is no way, other than forwarding each message individually, for my client to…

  7. AOL GOLD Export Feature

    Have an export feature so one can transfer their AOL Gold Desktop to a new computer. When you try to download AOL Gold to a new computer using your current screen name, AOL tells you that you have already downloaded AOL Gold. How does one transfer your current AOL Gold desktop account to a new computer without an export feature?

  8. AOL GOLD is NOT as friendly as the previous version with shortcut keys.Put back the Shortcut Keys that were in previous versions.

    AOL GOLD is NOT as friendly as the previous version with shortcut keys. I am disabled and I use shortcut keys a lot using a mouse is much harder for me to navigate. Like reading emails I was able to use the right arrow key to go to the next email in the previous now. In AOL GOLD it does NOT WORK. To DELETE an email I could use the delete key in previous version, but NOT in AOL GOLD. In previous version to go to my favorites I could hit the ALT key + V does not work in…

  10. When adding something new you need to tell us how to use it. For instance......

    On your new toolbar shortcuts I did not know that you had to use the keyboard arrows. I'm sure no-one else knew. You need to briefly explain how to use new things. However.......................... why are you wasting time creating these new things that take twice as long to use when you could be spending time FIXING the many things that we are all experiencing??

  11. Just got update 1713. Nothing you said you fixed worked.......

    Just got update 1713. Nothing you said you fixed works. Control L and Contol J do nothing. You said you also fixed missing shortcut keys. F5 still does not work. My neighbor got same results on her computer. This is insane already. What are you doing over there ?? I need the F5 key to work. When will you fix this? I've been asking for months.

  13. AOL Gold is a conspiracy to bankrupt AOL !!!!!!

    I think someone must be short selling AOL stock
    with the hopes AOL Gold will sink AOL to bankruptcy
    and they will make a killing in the stock market.
    Thats the only reason I can possibly think of
    why they would ignore all the AOL Gold complaints
    AOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please post how many customers have left AOL
    since the forced launch of AOL Gold
    I should be one of them, hanging on by a thread here
    if I remember way back when
    I think AOL 4.0 with dial up was better than AOL Gold
    so sad

  15. eliminate indents on replies

    Replies get an indent, thus a hypothetical back-and-forth could have as many indents as replies, meaning that when you get to the bottom (the starter email) it's ONE line per word.

    I can't get these to open with multiple clicks EVEN with a new mouse!. This used to be an EASY task with 9.8 and earlier (how about for 20+ years!). You should be PAYING US to use this joke called Gold.

  20. The address file is simply awful You cannot add new addresses easily. Please fix

    Type in an address that ]the address book. Yep, it pops up. But when you want to add another, AOL Gold gives you address options that are not applicable. I just want to simply add others separated by a comma. AOL Gold does not allow this. It is very frustrating. Please fix this..
