  1. Why can't we read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence?

    99% of us would like to read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence. We don't pay any attention to the gazillion ads you throw at us....which, by the way, cover 2/3 of the screen. I wouldn't click on an ad if you paid me.

    • Give Us Options

      Let US decide if the new AOL page is OK or give us the option to switch back to the old page. No local news, weather is vague, Get rid of all the ads or stop charging us

        • Rerun articles

          Quit running articles over and over and over for months at a time. Ridiculous. Classic example is Kanye's rant. Has been popping up for months. WHY? Nobody cares.

          • Restore the old spam settings. Now we only have one setting.

            First you took away stationery and vast choice of fonts, emojis, etc. Then you changed how mail is set up (from new, old, sent, spam, deleted mail to current style) and the Spam settings from numerous choices to only one (blocked). it seems the longer we continue to PAY for AOL Gold, the less we are getting for our money. I see by the Feedback that I'm far from alone in feeling AOL Gold does not seem "golden" to your PAYING customers.

            • AOL gold welcome screen new version stinks. Half screens/icons on left NO Good.

              The AOL Gold new welcome screen stinks. Half screens from the previous article or ad showing. Icons for maail and others on the left side. I liked it the old way without all the clutter and a picture (which was larger) of the article by itself. Stop changing things all the time.

                • NOT ONE POSITIVE COMMENT IN MANY MONTHS. HEY AOL? LISTENING?

                  Absolutely right,new GOLD *** major wind. The old AOL program was much more stab;e and user friendly; This GOLD version is not only an embarrassment, but probably ripe candidate for a class-action lawsuit. AOL should stop charging customers for an inferior product that is rife with problems not found in previous versions. AOL? ARE YOU LISTENING? EL **** !

                    • Email addresses

                      when putting in an address,all prior versions of AOL, the address would be saved. Then it would only require a few letters to be recalled. Now it does nothing. You have to continue to memorize every email address. What was wrong with 9.7. Can we not have a better version than Gold?

                        Please expand the size of attachments to more than 25 MB. Because when I tried to forward the exact email that I received, AOL Desktop Gold did not allow me to do it. I was able to send more than 25 MB of attachments from the old AOL Desktop 9.8.2.

                          • aol is brain dead

                            Has anyone working at AOL graduated high school? AOL is such a mish-mash of driblle and tripe and that it appears to be a training class for 8th grade wanna-be's......

                            AOL ****. If the word "maybe" and "reportedly" were taken out of the English vocabulary, AOL would be out of business.

                            • Back up and restore the Personal Filing Cabinet so that it can be transferred to a new computer!!!!!!!!!

                              Now you can only access the PFC on the original computer. What happens if your hard drive crashes or you get a new computer? You lose all your saved emails. You used to be able to save the Organize folder and transfer it. Bring that option back!!! Also, let users know when you add things like this through an update rather than discovering on our own.

                                I would suggest that recently deleted "Spam Mail" should go into the "Recently Deleted" folder the way previous versions (Blue) of AOL did for years. This would allow review prior to permanent deletion, esp. if the Spam Mail were deleted in error.

                                        Comment section doesn't show my Nickname automatically. I need to type it in manually. This problem doesn't happen before. I already talked to AOL's Technical Support and was advised to submit a feedback. My AOL Desktop Gold is updated.

                                        • why do we have to keep clicking

                                          Why do we have to keep clicking backwards to get back to article #1? Refresh used to do it instantly but you've removed that option. And no, clicking on "refresh" at the AOL logo does not do the same - it only refreshes the page you're on!
