  5. These instructions make NO SENSE TO ME... tried it and didn't work:

    To add a photo in the email signature… open the picture in a Photo Editor (we recommend Microsoft Paint), and after using the Selection tool to select which part of the photo you want in your signature, copy the selection using the Copy function in your photo editor, or with the CTRL+C keys on your keyboard. After copying the photo selection go to the Set Mail Signatures option in AOL Desktop Gold, and paste the photo in the signature compose window by using the CTRL+V keys on your keyboard.

  7. I am paying for your services and have to read and send mail on IE most of the time because GOLD is currently not able to send mail.

    fix AOL Gold.It ruined my computer and nothing works properly.Not to mention that I lost over 100 pieces of important info that did not get transferred. And your search engine does not work most of the time either.Mail can't be read or sent constantly This version of AOL is the worst I have seen in 20 years

  9. Neither CUT or EDIT/UNDO will remove a graphic from an email I am composing

    If I put a graphic in an email I am composing and then immediately decide to remove the graphic I can not remove it. I have to close the email and start all over. Don't tell me to clear my footprints. That does not help.

  10. I am paying for this aggravation?? Go back to 9.8.

    There is so much wrong in every area that I can't list everything here. Plus thing we loved like the Buddy List no longer exist. Things I have posted about in the past were either deleted with no explanation, or else they were not fixed or addressed. I have been a member since the 90's and this "updated" "better" Gold is the worst ever. Everyone wants 9.8. Why are you resisting? It has been months now with no fixes to critical problems.

    The browser is the worst piece of garbage. It does not update when you make changes to web…

  12. URGENT! Graphics being sent to customers have the resize box around them!

    Please fix immediately. AOL is ruining my business. I can not send graphics I create for customers. They have the resize box around them...they do not have the transparent backgrounds that they should have...and maybe it's just this crummy browser but they appear larger than they really are. What is AOL doing to us and when will all this be fixed?? There are problems in every area and I am paying for all of this????

  15. When Gold is open the entire computer is slowed down.

    When Gold is open the ENTIRE COMPUTER is slowed down. AOL Thinks I am saying The Desktop is slow, NO. It slows down other programs. When I get to work and turn on my computer, if I do not open Gold Desktop, everything opens quickly and with no problem, Word, Excel open in seconds. Once I open Gold Desktop everything is slowed down very very very much. It takes Word over 30 seconds to open if not more. The same with other programs. Firefox opens and then hangs just to open the basic page.
    Why is this happening? All during…

  17. AOL Gold email needs to be remedied

    When sending email and especially with attachments, frequently error messages appear and instruct to try again later. This rarely happened with previous versions of AOL. The new "Gold" should not have been rolled out until it was better prepared

  19. Refund monies when unable to access netFailed to load URL https://search.aol.com/aol/search?q=national%20archives%2c%20washington&s_it=loki-

    I've been paying aol for over 15 years and at this hour am unable to gain access to any site. WHY?
    Someone should be able to program simple tasks and stop screwing with updates that only delay and harm customers.

  20. Issues with everything

    There's a huge problem when you can't log on to AOL from your own desktop but you can with any of the other servers! There's loads of disgruntled people who hate Gold but guess what.. they're not listening!!!!!! I could go on forever! No blocking mail the easy way. No address book on the side. No way to access emails when offline! When trying to access AOL the screen just sits there blank! I used to be able to click my search email without typing in an address so I could bring all of them up and go thru and…
