  1. I'm appalled at the graphical user interface of this client. The old school clients are bettter. The GUI looks like a 3rd grade VB3 project

    Redesign the GUI. It's terrible. The old AOL clients were much better. This looks like a 3rd grade Visual Basic 3 project. I'm a programmer and I could design and code this in a couple hours. Terrible. But I'll continue to pay for this POS and hopefully you get a better progammer to design the GUI. Also, have the chat worked on and make it better. This is what the old AOL client lived on. Remove some restrictions in the chat you've already coded. This isn't 1943 and Hitler isn't invading us, Get real. Make this a client more similar…

  2. AOL Tech Fortress

    I down loaded AOL Tech Fortress to protect my Windows 7 desktop. It stopped "Windows Explorer" from oprating and sumarily cost me $300.00 to get it fixed. You had better take this program off the market before it does more damage. I called support and they could not help me so I went to a local professional.

  7. Can I change my display to dark with white type?

    I have a 32 inch monitor because it's easier to read type. But being only 24 inches from the screen it's really bright! Recently, while on Facebook, they popped up a dark screen where everything around the pictures was reversed(!) - dark and all the fonts were in white instead of black! What a difference! So, so easy on the eyes! I kept int for my display and absolutely loved it!

    Does AOL have this option? As a 30 year AOLer, I remember the old days when you could change your display. I used to use a tan and burgundy,…

  9. It would be great if we could submit comments on Daily Stuff, like the recent one about what baby-boomer foods millennials will not eat.

    Allow us to reply and comment on articles in Daily Stuff. I would have loved to make a comment on the one about creamed corn. The article said it's corn with cream but there is absolutely no cream or any dairy product in a can of creamed corn. It's called "creamed" because it looks like there's cream in it but it's just a can of corn in which much of the corn is overcooked and mashed so that it looks a bit ******.

  10. do not trust ads on AOL!!!

    shopped on anniecloth.com because ad kept coming up on side of email. the items looked cute in pics and looked like good quality. looked good on website as well. that was so totally deceiving. items extremely poor quality! and they come from china and took forever to arrive. website did not indicate it was overseas. note to self - never trust ads on AOL!!!

  11. I have two suggestions, first suggestion is to provide a grammar check as you provided the spell check.

    First suggestion is to provide a grammar check as you did with the spell check to help prevent writing errors. Secondly, to allow the customer service to take the information from the customer, and to pass it along to whoever they may transfer you to if they cannot provide assistance. Having the customer repeat all the data all over again is stressful when it can be relayed to whoever they are transferring you to, and to save time for the tech as well.

  12. WOW! What an internet service!!!

    There has literally not been one site I have been able to get into. Super long delays then crashes, mail bounces from one piece to another. We were told with the new owner service would get better and the only thing it's gotten is worse. Please don't tell me to contact another department, it's you who draws a paycheck from AOL, not me. It appears I am not the only one having problem with the talking movie company.Maybe if we contact the FCC, they'll respond. P.S. - AOL will never catch up with the likes of Google or MSN. Plus…

  13. 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.

  14. Why when I search a website do I get SOLICITATIONS TO BUY from the place

    I search a website one time and for the next two weeks my main page is filled with ads from the sites visited. Just because I visited a CARMAX website for example, I am inundated with ADS for their used cars. I AM NOT INTERESTED and it seems you probably profit from it. My searches are MY BUSINESS AND NOT YOURS!!!!!!!!!

  16. sign on screen make the username box bigger along with the arrow,you have plenty of room why don't you make it convenient for people to use

    Regarding sign on screen. Why don't you make the username box bigger making it easier to to log in . Above all the small arrow icon to change users. it's so small and light colored you need a magnifying glass to see it. I can't believe something that is used often is so small .Doesn't anybody that designed this ever tried to use it. You have to be a marksman to hit it with your mouse,every time I sign on it torques me that this was designed so stupid.

  18. TREATING US BADLY, WAKE UP!

    AOL, VERIZON, HUFEPOST,

    You sent an email request to take a poll regarding Lindsay Graham and then there were no box to check in favor of him.
    THERE WAS ONLY ONE BOX, HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE ARE....... WHY DO YOU TREAT US THIS WAY? YOU CAN'T TAKE A POLL WITH ONLY ONE CHOICE. WHAT MORONIC EDITOR ALLOWED AOL, VERIZON TO LOOK SO STUPID?

  19. Too much before I get to where I want to be

    PLEASE change it so that when I read a headline (like the one I read featuring Sam Elliott - where is he now?) I want to get to that article. I had to wade through myriad other celebrities before I got to him and it's not only frustrating but gets me darned angry. Give me what the headline offered, THEN put in the rest of the stuff. I'd be more inclined to click on the rest of the stuff if you don't force me to and give me what I asked for in the first place. Thank you.
