  2. Format control of emails page

    I want to see and control more emails at once than the new gold allows and show only what I want to see

    On aol anywhere I can

       - change the size and adjust how many emails show up on the list
    
    - use one hand and click on the side boxes to delete a large number of emails as a first run through
    - not have all the icons take up a quarter of the page

  4. Email "Emergency Brake."

    There used to be a "stop sending" button on emails. Example, you click SEND and suddenly realize you forgot something, used to be able to stop sending, fix it, and send it again. Would be really nice to have again.

  5. Add back "Insert Hyperlinks"

    Though there is the "insert Hyperlink" with the drop-down on highlighted text when writing an email, It DOES NOT work!!
    The word to add does get added, in the 'hyperlink color' but the Hyperlink does not get added.
    IN FACT - when hyperlinked images or words are added via copy/paste or "Reply To", the hyperlinks disappear

  7. How do I add words to local GOLD dictionary?

    The old Desktop has a way of adding my own unique 'word'..
    I.E. Names of people, etc...

    1 - They obviously weren't copied from the old AOL desktop, and there doesn't seem to be a way to add them to GOLD

  8. When downloading files

    The old Desktop 'remembered' the previous location. Gold resets after every download to my 'Windows Download directory' ..

    1 - LET ME set the default directory
    2 - LEAVE the previous directory path alone! Don't reset unless I DO IT.

  15. Incognito type browsing option on AOL

    Provide a blind search or browsing option / experience like Google Incognito. I hate to search or open a web page for a hotel or vacation for general information and then constantly get E-mails and pop up ads for that item. This does not happen with Incognito and there is no browsing history.

  16. new mail sound

    It is very frustrating that you can customize the sound for Welcome, You've Got Mail, and Goodbye but not for More Mail. In previous versions of AOL, I would assign the "You've Got Mail" sound to the "More Mail" command via Control Panel/Sound in Windows because you could barely hear the little CLICK sound it makes when you receive mail while logged into AOL. The AOL sounds no longer appear here and cannot be altered. So now we are stuck with the inaudible default click. Since these AOL software sounds no longer appear in Windows, would you please allow this…

  17. Improve toolbar with new icons, fixing distorted ones, and customizing the ENTIRE toolbar

    Here are some suggestions:

    1: Some of the icons are distorted and fuzzy. Please fix visual appearance.


    1. It would be nice to be able to customize the ENTIRE toolbar. Some icons I haven't even touched, such as Explore or Finance.


    2. The SEARCH button on the toolbar is out of place compared to the other buttons... it's dark. In previous beta tests (YEARS ago) it used to be either a yellow or gold color with dark text.


    3. Can we please get some updates on some of the icons? For example, the EXPLORE icon needs to look like binoculars, or maybe a…

  18. write mail

    It would be convenient when a user has multiple accounts /user names if the "write mail" screen would display the user name currently logged in. Example:
    "Write mail from User1234"
