  1. Improvement????

    About a week ago, my primary user name was replaced with a secondary one. Now the sign on screen on screen only shows the secondary name and to use the primary name, I have to type it and the password every time I log on. I submitted a bug report but as usual, nobody replies to them. There is NOTHING gold about this...

    Try refreshing the mailbox. Click on the Mail option on the top of the desktop screen and select Refresh Mailbox from the drop-down menu.

    So more steps to accomplish simple tasks. As a bonus "loading" forever.

  5. Highlighting a word in email is not working

    I can neither highlight a word or sentence or change font colors while writing an email. I also can't change the font color if I forward an email from one screen name to another. For example one of my screen names I use a pink font color, in another I use blue. If I forward email to another screen name I can't change the font color. I can't highlight any of the text. I reported this before and was advised to clean my footprints, well thats **** because it didn't work either, nor should I have to clear footprints just…

  8. Chat room error

    Chat room error. Had not posted anything. Hand not clicked on anything. Was booted out of the chat room with the following error: Failed to load URL http://162.243.172.9/msg/?c5a7f7e1e3a077d0ftfn1d5a7f7e1ea0b8=(866)%20282-6981 with error ERRCONNECTIONRESET (ConnectionReset),

    This is typical of the kinds of problems we see in Gold. Please give us back 9.8.2... at least it worked.

    A good saying to live by: "If it isn't broke, don't fix it."
    That is what AOL should have done before they started the gold project. It isn't like it is cutting edge technology. It still looks like the same old AOL except that it…

  10. Bring back some of the older features.

    I can no longer talk to my friend through instant messenger. She cannot use FACEBOOK and I have not been able to communicate with her via the internet for about three months now.

    I cannot fix photos through AOL and I was once able to do that.

    Also, I am not able to enlarge my font unless I do it manually for every email I write. I have some vision problems and having ONE font for everything was very helpful but I am no longer able to do that.

    To set a font for mail composing follow these steps: Mail > Mail Settings > “Font and Text” tab > Under Write Mail set the font size and type you would like to use. Changes are saved automatically.

    In case the issue persists, and for the Facebook problems you are experiencing through the AOL Desktop Gold, please call the dedicated Gold team at 1-888-265-3733 in order to have one of our Technicians assist you.

  11. It would be really great if our email actually worked. It's nothing but a struggle.

    Why can't you people fix the email? How long do you expect us to wait. I want to scream and cuss at you. THIS IS THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Fix the many glitches on the new software. New one this morning was having deleted emails go to spam folder rather than to deleted folder,

    Hey its time you fixed these problems. Its not like you forced conversion to the new desktop yesterday without sufficiently testing it.

  15. Not satisfied and problem not solved. Need further resolution!

    I can not attach pictures to my AOL Gold E-mail. Old AOL worked fine and I could attach with no problem. I spent 1 1/2 hours with AOL representative on 2/7/18 and was not able to get the problem resolved. I need and expect follow up help to resolve this problem. Please follow up and get this problem resolved. Had been with AOL since 1990.

  16. Where's AOL software?

    Where is AOL software so I can clear cache and rebuild AOL adapter?

    Also, Gold is very slow. I've cleared cookies, temporary files, etc. It still runs slow. How about fixing that. Gold was supposed to be the answer to all of AOL's previous issues. It's just more of the same old issues.

  18. print function

    How about "ctrl P" OR "print" from the drop down menu (right click) OR the "Print" option from the "file" drop down menu. Please give us regular users the multiple options we can use.

    PS - "ctrl P" from the screen is currently NOT working - nor is the "Refresh mail" from the right click menu.
