  1. Using the right aol feedback tool

    There are two ways to submit feedback and report bugs in aol desktop gold. Under help, choose either submit feedback or report a bug.

    Submit feedback is how to make aol desktop gold better and report a bug is explaining a problem that you're having with aol desktop gold.

    I have used both. My understanding is that the report a bug, lets aol engineers look into the problem, while submit feedback lets the aol staff know about things, which can then be passed onto the engineers.

  2. AOL GOLD? LET'S TALK IDIOTIC.

    THE FREE VERSION OF AOL OFFERS MUCH BETTER PHOTO VIEWING AND EDITING WHICH SHOULD BE INCORPORATED INTO AOL GOLD, THE PAID VERSION. YA THINK? THE RAMPANT IDIOCY AT AOL AND VERIZON IS NEAR BREATHTAKING. AOL GOLD IS RIFE WITH BUILT-IN WEAKNESSES AND ONGOING ISSUES THEY REFUSE TO CORRECT.

  4. Not Good

    There are too many things to talk about here but suffice it to say that AOL has gone so far down the tubes it is ridiculous. Email doesn't work the way it did before. Comments on articles is out of control. It doesn't matter what you say, it will deny your comment based on some ridiculous nonsense that someone says the word you use is bad. Oh, please. Even a medical term is considered 'bad'. ENOUGH!!

  10. "Open in External Application?" message

    When using AOL Desktop Gold, I have regularly been receiving a message asking me if I want to “Open Application in External Window?” If I click on the “details” button in that message window, I see: ttp://csync.loopme.me?redirect=https%3A%2F%2Fmatch.bnmla.com%2Fusersync%3Fdspid%3D181%26uuid%3D%5BUUID%5D

    I participated in a chat with AOL tech support (case number 01080092), allowed tech support to remotely control my computer, and we went through these steps: re-installed the ADG software, and cleared the cache and cookies. The problem remains unresolved. Please advise.

  11. AOL 800# TECH SUPPORT ACTUALLY MAKE PROBLEMS WORSE. READ BELOW

    AOL 800# Tech support is all foreign based so AOL Corporate officers can maximize their pay. AOL Tech Support usually creates more damage and make problems worse. AOL continues to utilize an idiotic, problematic browser arrangement that needs continuous reworking and updating. Their main default, workaround and fallback is to Reload the AOL Gold program via BOMGAR session, which most always causes loss of your AOL program-open settings and loss of all your personal TOOL-BAR settings and Icons which you have placed there, but, of course, always retrains the AOL commercial Icons, which actually can, and should be deleted. These…

  13. Yellow bar

    I still don't like the yellow highlight, but it is much less annoying now that it does not shift everything because it was larger vertically. But there still is one exception - when the yellow highlight overlaps the blue (selected) highlight, the size changes and this is visually annoying and distracting. Simple fix get rid of the yellow bar altogether, but otherwise fix the size issue when on the selected (blue) line.

  14. If a person can't sign-on because he forgot his password, how can you expect him to log-on to let you know there's a problem?

    Why not try being user friendly? Phoning a landline would work in my case. But sending am e-mail to an account that you can't log-on to seems like a waste of everyone's time.

  15. Duplicate Names

    I have had my aol.com email name since joining in the 1990's. until a few years ago some one else has my same e-address but not password which is of little comfort since I can trace her name, home address, city and state etc on the dark web. This was annoying at first but Im really concerned that my personal information may soon be found. This sounds like a flaw in AOL security. How long do I need to keep complaining? can someone fix this??

  16. Your new price increase!

    i have been a AOL member for over 40 years and have seen many increases over that time period. Much of the service I am getting is not worth what you people are going to charge on your new increases. On top of that I am a senior and the way costs are up, I have to make some changes in the money I spend each month I will be looking for another service provider and do away with AOL! You people have priced me out!

  18. Latest update

    I don't need to know that microsoft is ending support for windows 7. Every time I sign on, there is a message saying so. There should be an option to not display this message every time I sign on.

    Also I got an email from one of the aol testers that might explain why aol is slow at times, but there is no solution. Some of you might have the same issue that I do. I quote,

    What appears to be happening is that all your physical memory is being used, and is swapping to the hard drive. We are…

  20. Usint AOL gold dwhen needing to print an attachment it takes 4 additional steps to print. using google acess it automatically down loax

    Using AOL gold when needing to print an attachment it takes 4 additional steps to print. Using google access to AOL it automatically down loads and then allows me to print. I dont need to save the attachment.

    Switching from Gold to Google access is another additional step.

    Can you reduce the steps to print an attachment from AOL gold.
    Very cumbersome with Gold. .matepstein@aol.com
