  2. How to find info on new aol builds

    Since the what's new icon seems to have disappeared, the following link takes you to a page where you can read about the newest aol build.

    https://beta.aol.com/projects/desktop/windows/?icid=aolclient_favs_whatsnew

    Be sure to paste this link into the aol browser and not use a third party browser like firefox or google chrome. This is the only way to read about what an update gives you.

  11. unknownsender@unknowndomain

    unknownsender@unknowndomain spam. These emails always go to to the Spam folder and you can't block them because there isn't an actual email address associated with it. Why doesn't AOL automatically block anything that comes in with out an actual email address?

    How would Steven King know what the American people need in a president? He lives in another world. We don't need his political views.

  20. 1. Include option to remove or block the Trending Terms List in the taskbar. Undesirable clutter!

    Pls. give User option to block or remove the Trending Terms List that automatically appears when typing a url for website search in the AOL taskbar. This seems to appear with the most recent version of AOL Desktop Gold and is unwanted clutter. Also, difficult to correctly enter a url for web search until the Trending Terms List appears! Frustrating, unnecessary...a step backward. Please give Users an option to turn this feature off!!!
